What is TMJ?

TMJ stands for the Temporomandibular joint. It is the jaw joint located right in front of your ears. The TMJ, like other joints in our body, consists of moving parts which undergo daily stress. Problems with the jaw joint are known as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD), or more commonly just TMJ.

How do you know if you have TMJ?

Those with TMJ may experience pain or popping in the jaw, limited opening, and difficulty chewing. TMJ often results in muscle tension headches, dental pain, ear pain, and less frequently, ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and dizziness (vertigo). TMJ is sometimes associated with neck and upper back pain, migraines, fibromylagia, rheumatoid arthritis, depression and anxiety.

What causes TMJ?

Most TMJ is caused by the clenching or grinding of teeth, which is usually a result of stress. Sometimes problems start after trauma, such as in a sports injury or car accident. Over time this wear and tear can cause inflammation and degenerative changes in the muscle, bone, and cartilage. Approximately one-half of the population will have TMJ symptoms at some point in their life. The good news is for most people, symptoms are mild and do not require extensive treatment. About 5% of those with TMJ may progressively deteriorate into a more severe condition.

How can you treat TMJ/ is there a treatment for TMJ?

Treatment of TMJ may include a mouth appliance or biteguard to stop clenching, prescription medications such as anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxants, correction of dental problems, and physical therapy. Invasive surgical procedures have been used in severe cases, but with limited success.
