Kiss Sleep Apnea Goodbye
Rid Your Life of Discomfort and Pain
How’s Your Bite?
Have you been experiencing severe or chronic jaw and neck pain?
Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) occur as a result of problems with the jaw, jaw joint and surrounding facial muscles that control chewing and moving the jaw.
These disorders are often incorrectly called TMJ, which stands for temporomandibular joint, the hinge joint that connects the lower jaw to the temporal bone of the skull.
What Causes TMD?
It’s not clear what causes TMD but symptoms arise from problems with the muscles of the jaw or with the parts of the joint itself. Injury to the jaw, temporomandibular joint, or muscles of the head and neck can cause TMD.
People with TMD can experience severe pain and discomfort that can be temporary or last for many years. More women than men experience TMDand is seen most commonly in people between the ages of 20 and 40.
Other possible causes of TMD include:
Grinding or clenching the teeth (puts pressure on the TMJ)
Dislocation of the soft cushion or disc between the ball and socket
Osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis in the TMJ
Stress (person tightens facial and jaw muscles or clenches teeth)
Common symptoms of TMD include:
Jaw joint pain
Stiffness or pain in neck and shoulders
Tightening when you chew or speak
Limited ability to open the mouth
Jaws that lock
Clicking or popping
Tinnitis (ringing in the ears)
How We Diagnose Your TMD
Because many other conditions can cause similar symptoms to TMD – including a toothache, sinus problems, arthritis, or gum disease – Drs. Mogari or Brown will conduct a careful patient history and physical examination to determine if you have TMD or some other issue.
