What is Management of TMJ Disorder ?

TMJ dysfunctions, commonly referred to as TMD, represent a group of conditions impacting the jaw joints and associated muscles. Characterized by symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, and restricted mouth movement, TMD significantly affects daily life.

The temporomandibular joints, situated bilaterally in front of the ears, play a crucial role in basic functions like eating and talking. Notably, TMD demonstrates a higher occurrence in women and individuals assigned female at birth (AFAB), with a peak prevalence observed among those aged 20 to 40.

Why it is done

The treatment of TMJ disorders (TMD) aims to alleviate symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, and difficulty in mouth movements, thus improving quality of life. By addressing the underlying causes, such as muscle tension, joint misalignment, or inflammation, treatment helps restore normal jaw function and reduce discomfort.

Additionally, managing TMD can prevent complications like chronic pain or further joint damage. Overall, TMD treatment aims to enhance jaw function, alleviate symptoms, and improve overall well-being.
