Temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) or bruxism

Disorders of the temporo-mandibular joint or ATMare conditions that can cause pain in the jaw and associated structures, such as the neck, face, or ear. ATM problems usually affect the ability to swallow food, chewing, speaking, facial expressions, or breathing.

Sometimes bruxism has no symptoms and the person does not notice the problem. This is why routine dental checkups become important.

Poor occlusion (bad closing), trauma, muscle contractures, bruxism, stress or tension can be the cause of jaw pain. A detailed analysis is made to arrive at a correct diagnosis and recommend the most effective treatment in each case.
