MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

Your temporomandibular joint is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull, which are near the bottom of each ear. This joint allows you to move your jaw. Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, or TMJ Disorder, is caused by injury to the joint that connects your jaw to your skull.


TMJ-Disorder
TMJ SYMPTOMS

Injury can happen when a person grinds their teeth, has a misalignment of the teeth or jaw, poor posture, stress, and arthritis. 

Symptoms Can Include:

  • Pain where your jaw joins your skull
  • Your jaw is making a clicking or popping noise
  • You have ear pain or earaches
  • Your jaw muscles feel stiff or sore 
  • Your temple has pain 
  • Your jaw locks up 
  • You have swelling on the side of your face 
  • You have trouble chewing food or have a sudden uncomfortable sensation when biting
CAUSES OF TMJ DISORDER AND TMD DISORDER

The temporomandibular joint consists of a hinge that operates in a sliding motion. Segments of the bones that move and interact in the TMJ are surrounded by cartilage. Each of the bones are separated by a disk that absorbs shock. If normally operating, the motion should be smooth.

Pain Can Happen If:

  • Your disks move out of the proper alignment or they errode
  • Your joint is damaged from an injury or impact
  • Your bones or cartilage are damaged by arthritis in the jaw area
