What Is TMJ?
TMD (temporomandibular disorders), commonly referred to as TMJ, is characterized by significant pain in the jaw and a limited range of motion in the jaw joint. It can affect chewing, talking, swallowing, and sometimes even breathing.
TMJ is associated with several symptoms. Some of them include recurrent facial pain, swelling, constant teeth grinding, facial sensitivity, jaw joint locking, and a limited range of motion in the jaw.
Common TMJ symptoms include the following:
- Headaches and migraines
- Tenderness and pain surrounding the jaw, ears, cheeks, and neck
- Stiffness in the jaw
- Painful chewing
- Pain while yawning
- Locking of the jaw
- Uncontrolled change of facial expression
- Changes in the fit of the upper and lower teeth
If you are experiencing uncomfortable, painful symptoms related to TMJ, let us know! Dr. Game, your local Johns Island dentist, will perform an examination and design a customized treatment plan to restore your functional jaw, with treatment options including medicinal treatment or a tooth-protecting oral appliance.
These injections are usually associated with cosmetic practices, but when injected into just the right area, they can relieve the more severe symptoms of TMJ, such as migraines, pain, earaches, jaw tension, ear aches, and more. Your facial appearance will be unaffected by this type of TMJ treatment - the only thing you will notice is a reduction in pain!
