TMD (TEMPEROMANDIBUlAR JOINT DYSFUNCTION) TREATMENT


The temporomandibular (jaw) joint allows you to open and close your mouth, speak, swallow, and chew. Dysfunction of the joint may result in such symptoms as clicking or popping sounds, headaches, neck and facial pain, locking of the jaw, and ringing in the ears. The TM joints are part of a large group of muscles, ligaments, and bones that work together as a system. Because of this complex system a problem in one area can cause symptoms elsewhere. Many things can trigger TMJ disorder, such as stress, trauma to the face, whiplash, bad posture, uneven bite (malocclusion), the teeth not being able to properly support the jaw. This can occur from missing teeth, misaligned teeth, or back teeth that are too short. When this condition is prolonged, the body begins to compensate by involving muscles in other areas the neck, throat, upper and lower back, arms, etc. If you suffer from head, neck, or facial pain, we can help relieve symptoms and restore optimum function. If you have any questions about your temperomandibular joint, or the disorder, speak to one of our team members today!
