Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJD, TMD, or TMJ Disorder) is a term that refers to acute or chronic inflammation of the temporomandibular joint and/or sore jaw musculature, usually from muscular spasms, which can result in significant pain. Like any disorder, symptoms vary from person to person, but may include biting or chewing difficulty or discomfort, clicking, popping, or grating sound when opening or closing the mouth, a dull, aching pain in the face, earaches, headaches, migraines, hearing loss, jaw pain or tenderness, reduced ability to open or close the mouth, tinnitus, neck and shoulder pain, and dizziness. How we can help: Orthodontics can lead to significant improvement of the symptoms associated with TMJ Disorder, often without the use of braces.
