Dr. Dale Rottman DDS

TMJ is the joint that connects the lower and upper jaw. The term TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint. This is one of the most complex joints in the entire body, capable of forward and backward movement, rotations, and side-to-side movements. TMJ often refers to complications and problems with this joint.

Some of the most common symptoms of TMJ problems are:

  • Pain
  • Limited movement of the lower jaw
  • Clicking sounds
  • Muscle spasms
  • Locking of the jaw

Some potential causes of the disease include genetics, hormones, low-level infections, auto-immune diseases, trauma, and clenching or grinding of the teeth. Diagnosis and evaluation of such conditions are performed by dentists experienced in TMJ treatments and problems. Common treatments are night guards, bite guards, and bite adjustments. An experienced doctor of dental surgery (DDS) can help guide you toward the best treatment for your specific TMJ issue.
