Explain TMJ Disorder

TMJ disorder is a term that is used to describe a group of conditions that affect the temporomandibular joint, the hinge connecting the jaw to the skull. This joint is integral to basic activities such as speaking, chewing, and yawning. TMJ disorders can occur from various factors, including jaw injury, arthritis, genetic predisposition, or excessive strain on the jaw muscles. Understanding this condition’s multifaceted nature is crucial in addressing it effectively.

Signs and Symptoms of TMJ

Patients experiencing TMJ disorders may notice several symptoms. Signs of TMJ disorder can include discomfort or pain in the jaw, face, or neck, difficulty in opening and closing the jaw, accompanied by a clicking or popping noise during jaw movements, and even headaches or earaches. Recognizing these signs is the first step toward seeking professional intervention.

How Viva Dental Wellness Diagnoses TMJ
