Temporomandibular joint is a complex joint that helps in the movement of the lower jaw and it performs various functions like chewing, speech. For the normal functioning of the joint there has to be a balance between the muscles, bony components and the intervening disc. When the balance is lost it can cause painful conditions where performing even regular functions like speech and chewing are extremely difficult.
Some of the common symptoms of the condition are pain in the region of the joint, pain on opening the jaws, tenderness over the lower jaw especially over the angle, clicking sound on opening the jaws, restricted movement of the jaw, headaches, easy fatigue ability of the jaw muscles, muscle soreness of the chewing muscles.
Every condition should be evaluated from a clinical standpoint and a treatment plan formulated accordingly. The treatment varies from simply restoring the teeth, reshaping the teeth, removing some problematic teeth like third molars, correcting malocclusion, providing adequate rest to the joint, unlearning some deleterious habits, analgesics and the like to more complex treatment like splints to reduce the load over the joints.
We, at Dentys follow a very scientifically proven protocol in an approach to treat these conditions. We follow an approach which is simple initially and based on the outcome progress towards more complex treatment options.
