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).
