What is TMJ Dysfunction and Its Symptoms?

TMJ is an abbreviation for a jaw disorder that can cause the jaw joint to be misaligned. This can lead to headaches, problems eating, and even dizzy spells. TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, which is the small disk in the jaw that allows free movement.

Does it have a cure or treatment?

TMJ can be helped, but sometimes treatment may be difficult. Home remedies may include anti-inflammatory medication, such as Ibuprofen, soft foods or hot or cold packs to the face. Medical intervention may include a bite guard, which will help prevent the patient from biting down during their sleep, and prevent grinding teeth as well. Splint therapy in Manila Philippines may include the application of a splint at night to prevent the grinding or biting movement of the teeth.

How long is the treatment time?

The surgical options are exceptionally limited, but the dental surgeon may opt for TMJ dysfunction therapy, which can include flushing the TMJ joint with a sterile solution, getting cortisone shot in the area, or surgical intervention. Surgery is usually considered a last resort option, simply because the odds of success are fairly slim. A TMJ specialist in Manila Philippines may be able to give a consultation about surgery.

Surgery may include the replacement of the jaw joint, which is a fairly drastic measure to take. However, visiting with a specialist will give you a good idea of your treatment options for the TMJ disorder.

This disorder is difficult to diagnose and to treat, but there are options to help. Get a consultation to discuss your options for pain management and to find comfort levels.
