Temporomandibular joint dysfunction

Temporomandibular joint dysfunction

Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) is a common and very debilitating disorder. TMJ disorders usually begin as pain, clicking and popping noises in the jaw during movement. If not properly evaluated and treated, TMJ problems can continue to worsen and lead to headaches, facial pain, ear pain and difficulty eating.

f you have TMJ, every time you open and close your mouth you put wear on the tissues of the jaw joint. It is accompanied by noises such as clicking, grinding, or crunching when you open and close your mouth. This can cause severe problems if not treated properly, so it is recommended that you seek treatment.
