Does TMJD (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction) Pain Have You Down?

Maybe it’s time to try something new…

At any given time, over 35 million Americans are affected by TMJD. At Advanced Rehab and Medical we want you to know that we offer non-invasive, non-surgical treatments for TMJD.

What is TMJD?

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction or most commonly referred to as TMJD or TMJ, is a set of conditions characterized by pain in the jaw joint and surrounding tissues and limitation in jaw movements.

In a normal temporomandibular joint there is a small disc located at the top of the mandible that cushions the joint and prevents the mandible and temporal joints from rubbing together when the jaw is closed. When it opens the disc slides forward and continues to protect the jaw.

The Root of the Problem

In people with TMJD the disc is no longer protecting the bones from rubbing together, the disc often slides too far forward causing a clicking and pain in the joint.

Symptoms include:

Pain

Popping and Clicking When Opening Mouth

Inability to Open Mouth

Headaches

Neck Pain

Ear Fullness or Itchiness

Discomfort in Everyday Activities, i.e. Talking, Chewing, Kissing

How is TMJD Caused?

Although major trauma such as a car accident can certainly cause TMJD, more commonly it is caused by daily repetitive micro-traumas, i.e. poor posture in the neck, shoulders, or jaw, or by having an overbite. In fact, research has shown a correlation between forward head posture, overbite, and TMJD.
