TMJ Dysfunction

By: Walgren Dental Arts  09/23/2014

Your jaw joint, which holds your lower jaw in place, is suspended beneath your skull by an intricate system of muscles and tendons. The joints, also know as the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), are some of the most complex in the body. The jaw joint, surrounding muscles, and the fit of your teeth are closely interrelated, each affecting the other as you make everyday jaw movements such as speaking and chewing. Many people suffer from dizziness, earaches, face, head, neck, shoulder and back pain, without knowing the cause of their pain. Today, with new knowledge and technology, dentists are able to diagnose and treat TMJ problems which previously have been overlooked.After diagnosing the problem, a variety of treatments may be recommended. They might include occlusal equilibration, occlusal restoration or splint/jaw repositioning appliances.
