The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is the hinge that connects the lower jaw to the base of the skull. When this joint fails to function properly, it can cause joint and muscle pain. TMJ pain can be the result of stress and grinding or clenching the teeth. In some cases, however, TMJ disorder is a result of arthritis or some sort of trauma. Patients in their late teens or early 20's may experience jaw pain that is often caused by the eruption of their wisdom teeth. Many of these patients experience TMJ pain relief after the wisdom teeth are removed. #OralSurgeon

There are a number of different conditions that jaw surgery can either treat or correct. One of the most common reasons for jaw surgery is the correction of orthodontic misalignment. #OralSurgery #Periodontist #HolladayOralSurgeon #84117OralSurgeon

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, can often require surgical intervention when they become impacted or cause misalignment of other teeth.For some patients, the wisdom teeth never erupt and never cause any pain. This doesn't ensure that they won't cause problems. For some lucky few, they may never need to have these molars removed. Unfortunately, for a majority of patients, wisdom teeth develop at odd angles, leading to impaction or teeth that only partially erupt. Not only can this be quite painful, but it can lead to other complications. #OralSurgeon #WisdomTeethRemoval

Dr. Dustin J. Hopkin performs jaw surgery at his Salt Lake City, UT, oral surgery office to correct orthodontic misalignments, facial asymmetries, and growth removals. The primary purpose of orthognathic surgery, or corrective oral and maxillofacial surgery, is to ensure proper function of the jaw and preserve the health of the teeth and other oral tissues. #OralSurgeon

There are a variety of different circumstances that may require oral surgery. In some cases, an oral surgeon is needed to reconstruct and repair damage to the tissues from trauma sustained in an accident. #OralSurgery

All-on-4 implants can replace a full arch of teeth and support a full denture with as little as four implants. They are sometimes advertised as same-day-teeth or teeth-in-a-day because implants can be immediately loaded with a denture to avoid having to go without teeth during the healing phase. #Dentist #DentalImplants

The TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is the hinge between the lower jaw and the skull. Disorders can develop for many reasons, including clenching or grinding of teeth or over activity of the jaw muscles resulting in stress on the TM joint. #Dentist #OralSurgeon

Wisdom Teeth, the third and final set of molars, usually erupt during the late teens to your early twenties. In a majority of people, wisdom teeth erupt abnormally or remain impacted. #WisdomToothRemoval #OralSurgery
