What Is TMJ/TMD?
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ), when not functioning properly can cause a tremendous amount of pain. The tissues behind the joint (retrodiscal tissues) have nerves that run through them. Once they become inflamed, any slight pressure will cause and perpetuate the problem.
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders are not uncommon. Individuals with TMJ, TMD disorder may experience a variety of symptoms, such as earaches, headaches and limited ability to open your mouth. Also, this disorder can be attributed to sleep disorder and airway difficulties.
Diagnosing TMJ disorders can be complex and may require different diagnostic procedures. Special imaging studies of the joints may be ordered, and appropriate treatment will be provided to relive the problem.
