Understanding TMJ/TMD

TMJ/TMD refers to issues affecting the temporomandibular joint—the joint that connects your jawbone to your skull. It can cause a range of symptoms, including jaw pain, difficulty chewing, clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing the mouth, headaches, and earaches.

Common Causes of TMJ/TMD

  • Teeth grinding or clenching (bruxism)
  • Misaligned bite or dental problems
  • Stress and tension
  • Jaw injuries or trauma
  • Arthritis in the TMJ

  • Occlusal Splints or Nightguards: Custom-made oral appliances designed to reduce teeth grinding and clenching, providing relief from TMJ-related symptoms.
  • Bite Adjustment: Adjusting the alignment of your teeth to alleviate stress on the TMJ and improve jaw function.
  • Physical Therapy: Specific exercises and therapies can help strengthen jaw muscles and improve joint mobility.
  • Stress Management: Techniques to manage stress and tension, which can contribute to TMJ/TMD symptoms.
  • Medications: In some cases, over-the-counter or prescription medications may be used to alleviate pain and inflammation.
