Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) is a misunderstood condition that often goes undiagnosed and untreated. We wanted to take a little time to talk about this condition, including what it is and what you can do about it.
The temporomandibular joint is complex and unlike any other one in your body. It allows the complicated motion needed for eating but sometimes it also causes problems, like in cases of TMD. Some of the most common symptoms of TMD include:
● Pain, tenderness or tired jaw muscles
● Migraines or ringing in the ears
● Trouble opening your mouth widely
● Clicking or popping when opening or closing your mouth
Poorly aligned teeth, teeth grinding, or even car accidents can lead to TMD. Unfortunately, if left untreated TMD can lead to larger dental problems. If you suspect you have this condition, see a dentist as soon as possible to diagnose and create a treatment plan based on your unique situation.
