What is TMJ?

TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint, which is the joint connecting your jaw to your skull. When this joint is injured or damaged, it can lead to a localized pain disorder known as TMJ disorder or TMD. Symptoms often include jaw pain, difficulty in jaw movement, and even chronic pain in severe cases.

Causes of TMJ Disorders

TMJ disorders can be caused by a variety of factors including jaw injuries, teeth grinding, and rheumatoid arthritis. Even habits like excessive gum chewing can contribute to TMJ symptoms. Understanding the root cause is crucial for effective treatment.

Treatment Options

Lifestyle Tweaks

Simple lifestyle changes like eating soft foods and avoiding chewing gum can make a significant difference. Relaxation techniques can also help control jaw movement and relieve pain.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is often recommended to relieve pain and improve jaw movement. Techniques like transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation may be used to improve blood flow and relax tense muscles.


Your medical practitioner might prescribe Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and/or muscle relaxants to relieve pain. Over-the-counter medications may also be effective for milder symptoms.

Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment is a highly effective approach for many patients suffering from TMJ disorders. By achieving a healthy bite, we can alleviate stress on the jaw muscles and joints, leading to long-term pain relief and improved jaw function.

Surgical Treatments

In severe cases, treatments like TMJ arthroscopy or even open joint surgery may be recommended. These are usually considered as a last resort when nonsurgical treatments have failed.
