Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorders
Have you experienced pain in your jaw joint? Having problems opening or closing your mouth? Do you have clicking in your jaw joint or sounds in your ear? If you have ever experienced any of these symptoms, you may have a TMJ disorder.
TMJ disorders can affect daily functional activities such as eating and talking by causing pain and a limited mouth opening. They may occur alone but may be preceded or accompanied by conditions that affect the jaw muscles (Myofascial pain disorders) and parafunctional habits such as clenching or tooth grinding. These conditions are part of a larger group of disorders known as TemporoMandibular Disorders or TMD.
