Temporal Mandibular Joint Syndrome
Temporal Mandibular Joint Syndrome or TMJ as it is more commonly called, is a condition of facial pain in the joints of the jaw caused by misalignment of the Jaw. TMJ can be a frustrating and sometimes debilitating problem. Since it is a problem of the jaw, it affects us in some of the most common activities of daily living such as eating and talking.
First, the severity and frequency of symptoms decline and finally symptoms disappear and then the movement of the jaw stabilises. You will notice a reduction in constant nagging pain. Teeth grinding will diminish, ringing in your ears will decrease. Some patients report that improvement begins when they no longer wake up with a migraine or headache.
