TREATMENT OF TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DISORDERS & FACIAL PAIN

What Is TMJ Disorder?

Patients usually feel these sorts of pain in front of the ears, on temporomandibular joints, face and neck muscles. These sort of pains and complaints have been occurring more frequently in recent years.

The most common causes include exposure of the jaw to trauma, long-lasting dental treatments that require a wide opening of the mouth; bruxism meaning grinding, gnashing or clenching the teeth; habits of sustained biting of lips or foreign objects, abnormal placement of the upper and lower jaws in relation to each other or open spaces on the dental arch due to a number of teeth extractions not filled in by dentures, etc.

Making an accurate diagnosis is critical. Conservative treatments include orthodontic appliances applied during the night (night guards, splints), physical therapy, and patient training; the treatment success is over 85%.
