Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ) is a term used when the muscles in the jaw become painful and result in restricted movement. Any movement can also become noisy and if the symptons persist, treatment can become harder to manage and the affected patients quality of life starts to decline.
There are a number of TMJ causes such as excessive teeth grinding, injury and stress.
Most of the noticeable TMJ symptoms include jaw pain, pain in the cheek, pain in or around the ear, or pain around the temple area. Headaches and migraines can also develop if the symptoms are not treated early.
At Harrow Dental Practice our dentist will carry out a full assessment of your condition and then determine the right course of treatment for you. Our dentist will aim to understand your TMJ symptons and the cause before any treatment advice is given.
Surgical treatment would generally be the last resort as there are many alternative treatment options available to help resolve the problem.
