Many people may be unaware of the debilitating effects that temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ can have on their life. The temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects the lower jaw to the temporal bones of the skull. It is located on both sides of the head in front of each ear. Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) refer to any dysfunction of this joint and can cause pain in the jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement.
Common symptoms include pain or tenderness in the face, jaw, neck, or shoulders; difficulty chewing; clicking or popping sound when opening or closing the mouth; and locking of the jaw when trying to open it wide. Treatment options may include medications, physical therapy, splints, and lifestyle changes.
It is often mistaken for a minor problem, when in reality it can cause intense pain and discomfort. Here are some common misconceptions about TMJ:
TMJ is a Minor problem
This couldn’t be farther from the truth, as TMJ can cause extreme pain and discomfort if left untreated for too long. Additionally, it can lead to serious complications such as bite misalignment, teeth crowding and broken teeth.
TMJ Treatment is Expensive and Time-Consuming
While some treatments may require time and/or money, TMJ & Sleep Centers have developed an innovative treatment plan that can help correct TMJ naturally. This plan consists of a custom fitted neuromuscular orthotic placed into the mouth to move the jaw and muscles in a balanced position, relieving symptoms over time with proper usage. The neuromuscular orthotic is readjusted to continue fitting your jaw as the correction continues.
