Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder Treatment
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is a painful condition involving the joint that opens and closes the mouth. The temporomandibular joints are the small joints in front of each ear that attach the lower jaw to the skull. The disorder may affect the jaw joint or the muscles surrounding it. The exact cause of TMJ disorder is often unclear. Possible causes include excess tension in the jaw muscles, faulty alignment between the upper and lower teeth and jaws, and disturbed movement of the jaw joint. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include pain and clicking sounds with movement of the jaw.
Although there is no one treatment that will fully cure TMJ, there are a variety of treatments that will help to alleviate pain and prevent further damage from occurring in the jaw area. Therapy may involve a special splint, called a neuromuscular orthosis. This is often used to recreate balance. Subsequently, a semi-permanent splint may be necessary. Later, comprehensive orthodontics including braces and tooth restoration may be required.
