TMJD and Jaw Pain

What is TMJD?

TMJD stands for temporomandibular joint dysfunction.  


Background on the TMJ:

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the region in the body in which the jaw bone (the mandible) joins up with the skull (temporal bone).  Every person has two temporomandibular joints (right and left side) that serve a number of important functions in the body including making facial expressions and consuming tasty food.  Proper movement at the TMJ is thus essential for completing daily tasks.  


TMJD results in:

Due to a number of factors such as emotional stress, physical trauma, or chemical insult to the body, movement at one or both of the TMJs can become dysfunctional leading to jaw pain, locking and clicking.  When the TMJ is affected, patients often will experience neck pain or headaches as well.  


What to do:

A number of treatment options for TMJD exist including spinal and jaw adjustments, myofascial release, combination therapy, mouth guards, and stress management.  If conservative options are not successful, patients can be referred to a dentist or orofacial surgeon.
