TMJ Pathologies treatments

Discomfort when moving your mouth?

The TMJ is the joint which makes it possible to open and close the mouth. It is the joint where the jaw articulates with the temporal bone of the skull allowing chewing, swallowing, speaking...

It is estimated that nearly 50% of the population has some functional alteration of the masticatory system, but they are not aware of it.

Those alterations can be the origin of very diverse discomforts, being the most frequent: referred pain in the ear, neck, back, jaw; limitation when opening and /or closing the mouth; Noise or clicking in the area of ??TMJ temporomandibular joints (next to the ear), headaches (usually in the lateral areas).
