What is the temporomandibular joint

Posted on Dec. 11th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, Dental News, General News, Hygiene, TMJ No Comments »

Understanding the beginning of TMJ

The temporomandibular joint connects the lower jaw, called the mandible, to the bone at the side of the head—the temporal bone. If you place your fingers just in front of your ears and open your mouth, you can feel the joints. Because these joints are flexible, the jaw can move smoothly up and down and side to side, enabling us to talk, chew and yawn. Muscles attached to and surrounding the jaw joint control its position and movement.

What are the signs and symptoms of TMJ

Posted on Dec. 9th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, General News, Oral Surgery, Root Canals, TMJ No Comments »

A variety of symptoms may be linked to TMJ disorders. Pain, particularly in the chewing muscles and/or jaw joint, is the most common symptom. Other likely symptoms include:

  • radiating pain in the face, jaw, or neck,
  • jaw muscle stiffness,
  • limited movement or locking of the jaw,
  • painful clicking, popping or grating in the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth,
  • a change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together.

What causes TMJ disorders

Posted on Dec. 8th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Braces, Dental Help, General News, Health News, Hygiene, Oral Surgery, TMJ No Comments »

Trauma to the jaw or temporomandibular joint plays a role in some TMJ disorders. But for most jaw joint and muscle problems, scientists don’t know the causes. For many people, symptoms seem to start without obvious reason. Research disputes the popular belief that a bad bite or orthodontic braces can trigger TMJ disorders.

How are TMJ disorders diagnosed?

Posted on Dec. 6th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, Hygiene, Oral Surgery, TMJ No Comments »

There is no widely accepted, standard test now available to correctly diagnose TMJ disorders. Because the exact causes and symptoms are not clear, identifying these disorders can be difficult and confusing. Currently, health care providers note the patient’s description of symptoms, take a detailed medical and dental history, and examine problem areas, including the head, neck, face, and jaw. Imaging studies may also be recommended.
