Jaw related problems
An improperly growing jaw can cause a lot of pain and discomfort in the mouth. It can also affect chewing, biting and even breathing if the condition is not monitored.

The TMJ better known as the temporomandibular joint is a high-functioning joint found in front of the ear. It connects the jaw to the whole of the skull. A disorder affecting this joint may cause a lot of pain and discomfort while moving your jaws. Oral surgery can be applied to treat this disorder by correcting the position or structure of the temporomandibular joint. This will ensure that you don’t experience any more pain from the joint.
