TMJ or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder Treatment

Oral and Maxillofacial

Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) affect the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), also known as the jaw joint. They can also affect the facial muscles that aid in chewing. The shoulder, neck, and jaw are the most common locations for pain. This is a relatively uncommon oral health issue that has the potential to cause migraines. Specific dental treatment can assist in proper jaw movement.

Signs and symptoms of TMJ disorders

  • Temporomandibular joint pain in one or both joints
  • Tenderness or pain in jaw
  • A throbbing pain in your ear and around
  • Chewing difficulty or pain while chewing
  • Aching pain in the face
  • Aching facial pain
  • The joint becomes locked, making it difficult to open or close the mouth.

Causes of TMJ disorders:

The hinge and sliding motions of the temporomandibular joint are combined. The parts of the bones that interact in the joint are covered in cartilage and separated by a small shock-absorbing disc, which keeps the movement smooth in most cases.

Occurs when:

  • The disc erodes or shifts out of its original position.
  • Arthritis damages the cartilage in the joint.
  • A blow or other impact causes damage to the joint.
