The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most heavily utilized joints in the human body. Mechanically, the TMJ is what allows you to open and close your mouth, and to a lesser extent, extend and move your jaw from side to side.

Even after trying our best to prevent cavities or tooth decay, sometimes the dentist finds a little cavity or two at a cleaning or check-up. Tooth decay is not always visible to the naked eye, but when it is, even if you feel no pain, procrastinating on getting treatment from your dentist can come with a price.
