What is TMJ?

The temporomandibular joint connects your lower jaw to your skull. It is what allows you the basic movements of chewing, speaking, and talking. TMJ disorder is when your joints and muscles stop working together to function. This will cause you a lot of pain, especially when you need to use these muscles and joints for basic functions on a daily basis. TMJ disorder can be caused by a misalignment of your upper and lower jaw causing them to match up incorrectly. This is also known as a bite. TMJ disorder symptoms vary patient to patient. Some experience tenderness in the area, headaches, earaches, head pain, sinus issues, limited use of their jaw, and popping noises when their mouth is opening. If you are frequently experiencing any of the above symptoms, then contact your Mesa dentist. This may be a sign you are in need of TMJ dental treatment.
