TMJ Treatment Q & A

What is the TMJ?

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is a condition affecting the joint between the jaw and the skull. This joint is a complex system of bone, ligament, cartilage, and muscle.

When this joint has been damaged, it may cause pain and significant injury to the surrounding tissues, including the teeth. TMJ disorders can affect the position, sensitivity, and wear of your teeth, as well as cause jaw and tooth pain when eating and talking.

As TMJ disorders can cause other health issues, such as chronic headaches, your primary care physician may refer you to Wall Street Dental Spa for treatment.

What causes TMJ pain?

There are several possible causes of damage to the TMJ and finding the underlying cause may be important in helping this painful and potentially damaging condition. These may include:

○ Teeth grinding or jaw clenching
○ Long-term stress
○ Facial trauma
○ Dislocation or fracture
○ Inflammatory diseases
○ Arthritis or other joint conditions
○ Uneven bite

Your dentist at Wall Street Dental Spa may use X-rays or a CT scan to determine the underlying cause of your TMJ disorder.
