Our team of professional dentists will work with you to determine the most effective treatment for your condition and to provide real TMJ relief for you.

What is TMJ?

TMJ syndrome encompasses a range of conditions that affect the way the temporomandibular joint connects the jaw to the rest of the skull. When this joint does not operate properly, patients often experience serious pain and dysfunction when chewing, talking, yawning, and using their jaws in other ways. A number of factors can play a role in causing TMJ disorder. In some cases, however, no clear cause can be determined by your dentist.

What Causes TMJ?

Some of the most commonly identified causes of TMJ include the following:

  • Arthritis of the temporomandibular joint
  • An injury that affects the jaw, neck, or head
  • Unusual movement in the disc or cartilage of the joint
  • Grinding and clenching of teeth during sleep or due to stress

Treating these root causes can often reduce the severity of this condition and can provide some relief for patients.

Warning Signs that You May Have TMJ

Some of the early warning signs of TMJ include pain or discomfort in the jaw, ear, neck, face, or shoulders when yawning, chewing, or speaking. Some patients report feeling that their jaw is stuck in a specific position or that they hear pops or clicks when opening or closing their mouths. While these signs are indicative of a dental problem, consulting with a TMJ specialist is the best way to determine if your problems are due to this disorder.

Common Symptoms of TMJ

Patients with TMJ often suffer from serious headaches that may have characteristics in common with migraines. Earaches and pain behind the eyes are also common symptoms of this disorder. Another common symptom of confirmed TMJ sufferers is the failure of upper and lower teeth to meet as they once did.

Treatments for TMJ

Temporomandibular joint treatments range from simple home remedies to surgical solutions that readjust the alignment of the joint and correct any bite problems. Because the causes and symptoms of this disorder vary widely from individual to individual, no one TMJ cure will work for every patient. If TMJ surgery is required, it should be performed by an experienced dental surgeon to reduce the risk of complications.
