What Is TMJ?
TMJ is when your jaw joint isn’t working properly due to many different causes. Although this sounds like a simple problem, its effects can be complicated and far-reaching
Your jaw joint exists at a major crossroads of your body. It’s directly involved in eating, drinking, speaking, and breathing. Indirectly, the muscles that control your jaw partner with the muscles that keep your neck in alignment to support you head and those that are on your scalp and face. In addition, your ear is very near your jaw joint, and major nerves and blood vessels run by your jaw joint
As a result, a problem with your jaw joint can result in many different symptoms.
TMJ symptoms can be local or they can be spread throughout your body. Some TMJ symptoms include:
- Jaw pain
- Jaw sounds: clicking, popping, or grinding
- Sore teeth
- Worn, chipped, or cracked teeth
- Pain in the face, or behind the eye
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- Vertigo, dizziness, or balance problems
- Neck pain
- Upper back pain
- Tingling or numbness in the fingers
With all these symptoms, it’s no wonder that doctors often have difficulty diagnosing TMJ. However, neuromuscular dentistry has the tools to properly diagnosis TMJ.
