tmj-neuromuscular-dentistry

TMJ, or “Temporomandibular Joint Disorder”, is a condition in which an individual has pain and discomfort due to the joints in their jaw. In general, it is when muscles, jaw joint and teeth are not in position.

Common Symptoms of TMJ Disorder:

  • Jaw pain
  • Migraine-like headaches
  • Back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Earaches
  • Clicking, locking or popping of the jaw
  • Uneven bite
  • Ringing in your ears
  • Vertigo or dizziness
  • Clenching and grinding
  • Numbness or tingling in the extremities
  • Crowded or loose teeth

Diagnosis

In addition to X-rays or digital radiographs that reveal the position and condition of the jaw joints, dentists use several diagnostic technologies in order to determine the ideal position of your jaw to relieve TMD symptoms. These technologies include:

  • Computerized equipment to record the resting position of a person’s jaw, how it closes and any other movements
  • Electromyography (EMG) to measure the stressed and relaxed positions of a person’s jaw muscles, as well as identify any structural defects in the jaw joint
  • Sonography, and/or Joint Vibration Analysis to record jaw joint sounds and determine the presence of abnormalities

If you suffer from any of the above symptoms and would like to schedule an appointment and exam, please call +91 9020160160.
