TMJ Diagnosis & Treatment

What is TMJ?

The temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects your jaw to your skull. When this joint is injured, misaligned, or damaged, it can lead to a localized pain disorder called TMJ syndrome.

Imbalances to this joint can be caused by any number of things. But if the joint is imbalanced it can cause pain in the head, jaw, neck, and ears, while also causing frequent headaches or migraines. If TMJ goes untreated, it can cause great amounts of pain and discomfort for the patient.

TMJ Diagnosis

A TMJ diagnosis won’t be the same for every patient as there are a variety of causes. Some of the likeliest causes are:

  • Teeth Grinding
  • A history of accidents or trauma
  • Overbite
  • Dentures
  • History of dental reconstructive/orthodontic work

The above are some generalized issues that are common in most head pain sufferers and are some of the causes of TMJ.

TMJ Treatment

Treatments for TMJ are not a one-size-fits-all situation. Generally, TMJ treatments require a combination of various methods that we provide. There are many internationally-used theories and treatment protocols for headache therapy and for TMJ. Once we have given a patient their proper diagnosis we are able to give them pain relief and therapy.
