Savannah, GA (PRWEB) March 07, 2017

Temporomandibular joint disease, or TMJ, is a serious and progressive disease that can cause a variety of symptoms. Over time, TMJ can permanently damage the jaw joint and its supporting structures, but it can be halted or even reversed with proper diagnosis and treatment. For March, Savannah Dental Solutions is offering a complimentary TMJ consultation.

What Is TMJ?
TMJ is a misalignment of the complex temporomandibular joint. While the joint normally operates smoothly, like a sliding hinge, TMJ causes pain and difficulty with movement. TMJ sometimes occurs after trauma to the jaw, but its root cause is most often unclear.

TMJ creates a structural misalignment of the teeth. During chewing, the jaw is pulled further out of alignment in an attempt to balance the bite. This causes immense pressure in the joint capsule, leading to the hallmark pain, pops, and clicks experienced by TMJ sufferers.

Symptoms of TMJ
Everyone experiences TMJ in a different way. Nonetheless, most people with the disease experience a few of the most common symptoms:

  • Jaw pain
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds in the jaw
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Jaw lockup
  • Pain in the ear, head, or face

TMJ Treatments
TMJ treatments focus on relaxing the jaw and realigning the bite. Mild cases might require only home remedies, while more complex cases generally require in-office procedures. Common treatment options include, but are not limited to:

  • Purposeful relaxation
  • Ice packs
  • Medications
  • Orthotics
  • Physical therapy
  • Functional reconstruction
