TMJ is the joint that connects the lower and upper jaw. The term TMJ stands for Temporo-mandibular Joint.

TMJ often refers to complications and problems with this joint. Some of the most common symptoms of TMJ problems are:tmj

  • Pain
  • Limited movement of the lower jaw

Some potential causes of the disease include genetics, hormones, low-level infections, auto-immune diseases, trauma, and clenching or grinding of the teeth. Diagnosis and evaluation of such conditions are performed by dentists experienced in TMJ problems and treatments. Some common treatments are Night Guards, Bite Guards, and Bite Adjustments. Your dentist can guide you toward the best treatment for you.
