TMJ Dysfunction

 

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jaw to the side of your head. When it works well, it enables you to talk, chew, and yawn. For people with TMJ dysfunction, problems with the joint and muscles around it may cause

  • Pain that travels through the face, jaw, or neck
  • Stiff jaw muscles
  • Limited movement or locking of the jaw
  • Painful clicking or popping in the jaw
  • A change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together

 

If  you  are  experiencing    jaw  clicking,  jaw  popping,  grinding,  limited  jaw  opening,  deviation  of  

the  jaw  while  opening  the  mouth  and  inability  to  clench  your  jaws  then  you  are  most  likely  suffering  from  temporomandibular  joint  dysfunction.  We conveniently  call  it  TMJ  dysfunction.  TMD  sufferers  are  often  teeth  grinders  or  clenchers.    TMD  can  cause  jaw  headaches,  ear  pain,  dizziness  and  upper  neck  pain.  Some  TMJ  patients  report  pain  or  inability  to  eat,  talk  or  sing.  

Tinnitus  or  ear  ringing  can  be  associated  with  TMJ  dysfunction.  (Vierola  et  al  2012).  

If  you  have  TMJ  dysfunction,  please  book  your  appointment now  to  get  your  assessment  done.
