Temporomandibular Joint dysfunction or disorder is an umbrella term used to refer to a number of problems that can cause the unit of articular disc, ligament, and muscles in the joint to not function properly. The cause for the disorder may be anything from poor physical structure, to accident and injury, to misdiagnosis or poor orthodontic work. There are many chief complaints associated with TMJ disorder, including, but not limited to:

  • Jaw pain, clicking, popping, crunching, locking, noises
  • Ear pain, fullness, congestion, wooshing
  • Headaches (morning, recurrent, nightly) or Migraines
  • Teeth clenching or grinding
  • Neck pain or base of skull pain
  • Pain when chewing
  • Difficulty opening mouth
  • Bite feels off or different than before
  • Dizziness

The above problems can make life miserable in extreme cases but even when symptoms are mild, if left untreated, they will get worse. It is important to get TMJ disorder treated as early as possible to ensure the easiest possible treatment with the best results.
