What is TMJ?
TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, which connects the jawbone to the skull. The joint enables jaw movement, allowing us to talk, chew, and yawn. However, when the joint is damaged, overused, or inflamed, it can result in a condition known as TMJ disorder. This condition can be caused by several factors, including grinding of teeth, jaw misalignment, and injury to the jaw or surrounding muscles.
Symptoms of TMJ Disorder:
- Pain or tenderness in the jaw joint area
- Aching pain in or around the ear
- Difficulty or pain while chewing
- A clicking or popping sound when opening or closing the mouth
- A sensation of the jaw “locking” or getting stuck in an open or closed position
- Headaches or neck aches
- Swelling on the side of the face
- Toothaches or sensitivity without the presence of dental problems
- Tiredness in the facial muscles
