Many people have heard of TMJ disorders before and know it as a clicking or popping of the jaw. Yet many people are not sure what it actually involves, the causes of TMJ disorders, or the dangers associated with the condition. Dr. Diana Batoon is committed to remedying the root cause of the problem and has helped numerous TMJ disorder patients throughout the Scottsdale and Phoenix area. Using her expertise and the latest diagnostic techniques, Dr. Batoon will eliminate the pain associated with the condition and enhance your overall quality of life.
All of the structures of the skull and face are interconnected, which means that minor problems can lead to other more serious problems you would not expect. In fact, some of the causes of TMJ disorders involve more than just the jaw joint. Your tooth alignment, your facial muscles, your stress level, and even the posture and position of your head can all contribute to a TMJ disorder. Indeed, it’s a condition that is more common than you think.
The symptoms of TMJ disorders are not just related to the jaw. Yes, clicking, popping, stiffness, and pain in the jaw are all common, but some patients also experience headaches, tooth aches, sore gums, ear pain, and even hearing problems. If untreated, there are a number of dangers related to TMJ disorders which can affect your dental health and general well-being. That’s why it’s imperative to visit our practice serving Scottsdale for a TMJ consultation.
Once your situation has been thoroughly evaluated, Dr. Batoon will devise a TMD treatment plan just for you. In some cases, basic TMJ disorder treatments such as bite splints and orthodontic care will be considered. For more severe cases, advanced TMJ disorder treatments will be applied, such as oral surgery and injection therapies.
If you suffer from jaw pain, clicking, popping, or any other symptoms associated with a TMJ disorder, it’s important that you visit our practice as soon as possible. Dealing with the problem sooner rather than later makes for effective treatment and less potential problems down the road.

I recently went in to have some work done that I have been putting off for sometime. I had two crowns that I desperately needed. The entire procedure went well. I have been going there for some time now and the staff has always been friendly. I have two boys that I bring in there too. They always make me feel comfortable which is extremely important to me.
