TMJ Syndrome Causes, Symptoms, Treatment
TMJ is often caused by irregularities in the mouth and jaw. A variety of symptoms can result when the arches of the mouth are imbalanced or the jaw joint or muscles are damaged. These issues can be caused by degenerative or genetic problems in the jaw bones, misalignment of the teeth, trauma to the face or jaw and other factors. Symptoms can be felt in the jaw and possibly also impact the neck, ears, shoulders and facial region. Some symptoms that can be associated with TMJ include:
- Popping, clicking or dysfunction in the jaw joint
- Headaches and migraines stemming from jaw stress
- Pain in the neck and shoulder region
- Tinnitus or ringing in the ears, as well as earaches
- Facial and jaw pain or swelling
- Sleeping problems or dizziness
Treatment for TMJ begins with finding the source of the stress on the jaw joint and muscles. Dr. Perkins performs comprehensive exams to uncover the cause of TMJ for each patient. He then customizes a treatment plan to offer relief.
