It is a kind of pain caused by damaged joints. Treatment options for your jaw joints.

TMJ Treatment

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull. Every person has 2 temporomandibular joints. TMJ disorders are a type of temporomandibular disorder or TMD that causes pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. It may be Unilateral (single side) or bilateral (both sides).

The exact cause of a person's TMJ disorder is often difficult to determine and it may occur at any age. Your pain may be due to a combination of factors, such as genetics, arthritis, impacted wisdom tooth, jaw injury, Bruxism (tend to clench teeth), although many people habitually clench or grind their teeth and never develop TMJ disorders.

In most cases, the pain and discomfort associated with TMJ disorders is temporary and can be relieved with our dentist’s consultation or nonsurgical treatments. Surgery is typically the last way after conservative measures have failed, but some people with TMJ disorders may benefit from surgical treatment.
