What is a TMJ Disorder?

Also known as Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome, TMJ disorder is a pain in the jaw caused by the different medical issues. The TMJ is connected to the skull or temporal bone in front of the ear. Facial muscles that are used for chewing are also attached to the lower jaw.
Problems in these areas often occur such as:

  • Neck pain
  • Ear Pain
  • Head Pain/Headache
  • Locked jaw
  • Facial pain
  • Clicking/popping jaw
  • Problems with biting

The Causes of TMJ Syndrome

TMJ syndrome can be caused by a lot of medical problems such as diseases, wear and tear, and trauma.

Trauma: Trauma is divided into microtrauma and macrotrauma. The former occurs internally such as bruxism or grinding the teeth and jaw tightening or known as clenching. The continuous grinding, gritting or clenching of the temporomandibular joint can alter the state of one’s teeth. Macrotrauma on the other hand is caused by accidents, punching or a damaged cartilage disc of the joint.

Arthritis: Our jaw point is prone to arthritic changes and these changes are sometimes caused by osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis that involves joint degeneration, aging, inflammation in joints or join deformity.

  • Joint infection
  • Bone defect from birth
  • Cancer

Signs and Symptoms of the Condition

Problems with the TMJ (the joint that connects the skull and lower jaw) can significantly affect your daily life. Those who suffer from TMJ disorders often experience a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Soreness and pain in the jaw
  • Clicking or popping noises when opening or closing the mouth
  • Trouble chewing
  • A misaligned bite or other bite problems
  • Tooth and/or earaches not caused by infection or other dental problems
  • Recurring head and/or neck-aches
  • A “locked” or stiff jaw

For the past few years I've been debating a tooth restoration treatment from my dentist here, and I finally took the plunge, and they look great! The reason I ended up going for it is, what's not to like? Their services are modestly priced, and the staff is loyal and friendly to their longtime customers (aka me!)

I was looking for a dentist near me and my sister recommended Advanced Dental Concept! My whole experience was good. I was treated nicely the moment I walked in. The place was welcoming and the staff was friendly. I had my check up there and will come back for my teeth whitening treatment!

Hands down the best dental office I have ever been too. I am a huge scaredy cat when it comes to having anything done to my teeth and everyone at Advanced Dental Concepts have gone above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. 10/10!

The best dental visit I've ever had for me and my kids. So loved that I found this office through reviews. The reviews were right. Love the visit. Office super clean, smells great in there. They took care of my teeth. First time ever being satisfied after a cleaning. My teeth feel great. I notice a difference. More than pleased.

I regularly get my teeth whitening treatment from here. If I had before & after pics on my computer I'd post them to show the huge difference between before I started treatments 6 months ago, and now. All I can say is, my smile has never looked more glamorous
