TMJ Prevalence

    For Patients

    According to the guidelines of the American Academy of Orofacial Pain, it is estimated that 40% to 75% of the population has at least one sign (e.g., clicking jaw) of a TMJ disorder and 33% of the population has reported at least one symptom (e.g., pain) related to a TMJ disorder.

    Women are eight times more likely than men to have a TMJ disorder. It is experienced mostly by women between the ages of 20 and 54, and pain usually begins after puberty.

    Only 5% to 10% of adults with a TMJ disorder require treatment.

    Dr. Goodfellow helped me immensely with all of my TMJ and sleep problems. He always explained every part of my treatment in detail so we were always at the same level of understanding. His staff was extremely kind and always accommodating of my needs. One of the best clinics and most pleasant experiences I have had when getting a medical treatment!

    If you have TMJ issues and headaches, go to Dr Goodfellow! I have suffered from migraines, jaw locking and clicking, aches, etc; after my treatment with Dr Goodfellow and his team, my jaw doesn’t lock and click anymore and I can open my mouth wide again with no pain! My headaches have decreased too. very happy, thank you 🙂
