Treatments for Temporomandibular joint disorders

Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) is a set of conditions that involve issues with your jaw and face muscles. They are a result of problems in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). TMJ is a hinge that connects the temporal bones, in your skull in front of each ear, to your jaw. The joint allows you to talk, yawn, and chew by letting your mouth move.

TMD Symptoms

TMD can be very painful and interfere with actions such as eating and speaking. Symptoms of TMD can last for short period or for years. Seeing a professional is important if your symptoms make it difficult for you to eat properly or if you have unbearable pain or discomfort. Symptoms include:

  • aching or very tired facial muscles,
  • jaws that are fixed open or shut without you being able to unlock them,
  • grating or popping sounds when you chew or close or open your mouth,
  • pain in the entire area– the mouth, jaw, neck, or shoulders– that comes on when you chew or yawn.

Preventing TMD

You can try to prevent TMD by focusing on reducing risk factors.

  • If you grind your teeth at night, ask your dentist about wearing a mouthguard.
  • If you are overly stressed, look into ways to better manage your stress and relax your muscles.
  • Avoid actions that put stress on your jaw, such as chewing gum.
