TMJ TREATMENT

TMJ disorder includes a range of symptoms that are associated with the temporomandibular joints (TMJs). These joints connect the lower jaw to the skull on each side of the head. Problems in this area develop when excess stress is put on the structures around the joint, including the muscles, teeth, ligaments, and cartilage.

Bruxism, or teeth grinding and teeth clenching can contribute to TMJ disorder. Though the cause of bruxism is unknown, it is believed that stress is a factor. The other possibility is that you may be compensating for an incorrect bite.

Clenching and grinding of the teeth, poor posture, arthritis, injuries, and structural problems can all cause excess stress and pressure at the joints which can cause the uncomfortable symptoms associated with TMJ disorder. Symptoms of TMJ disorder may include headaches, ringing in the ears, popping, grinding,or clicking during jaw movement, difficulty opening or closing mouth, and even neck and shoulder pain.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, you may be suffering from a TMJ disorder. TMJ disorders can be treated through a variety of restorative dentistry procedures and nightguards, among other treatments.
