The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is the joint that connects the upper and lower jaw and is responsible for the opening and closing of the mouth. TMJ is the term widely in use when referring to Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD), a complex group of TMJ dysfunctions characterized by pain and limited mobility in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and surrounding tissue.
Symptoms and Signs :
- Popping or clicking in the jaw
- Locked jaw, difficulty opening the mouth
- Pain when chewing, eating or opening wide
- Frequent headaches or migraines
- Soreness or tiredness in the face or jaw
What to Expect:
Improper bite alignment and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems can cause pain as well as deterioration of teeth and supporting structures. Dr. Olivares evaluates all patients for TMJ dysfunction as part of comprehensive treatment planning at her Doral dental spa. Because no two patients are alike, there is no single course of treatment for TMJ dysfunction. Depending on your condition, Dr. Olivares may prescribe a combination of TMJ treatments for optimal results.
