About TMD

You may have heard of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, or more commonly referred to as TMJ before, but are you aware of the symptoms and treatment involved with it? TMD refers to symptoms that begin in the upper and lower jaw, often involving pain and discomfort in the head, neck and/ or shoulders. It is a major oral concern that can cause extreme discomfort, but with proper treatment by a TMJ expert, the pain can be relieved and the issue resolved.

TMJ Ortho’s Dr. Zusko has dedicated his career to helping those who suffer from chronic pain caused by or more commonly referred to as TMJ. Information is power and we make it our goal to help inform our patients about what TMJ is and how this could be the cause of your chronic pain. As a fully licensed and certified dental practitioner servicing Walkerville, Windsor, Tecumseh and surrounding areas, we also offer information and solutions for braces and jaw orthopedics and sleep apnea.

Dr. Zusko and our team here at TMJ Ortho are here to help and look forward to meeting with you to discuss your concerns.
