The temporo mandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most complicated joint systems in your body and the most active – moving at least 2,000 times a day!

It connects your lower jaw to your skull so, for example, it swings into action every time you eat, drink, talk or yawn. If the surfaces of your teeth do not line up properly, this can, over time, affect your TMJ and your jaw muscles, and it can also affect your teeth of course, especially if you grind them together during the night, or you tend to clench your jaw when you’re feeling stressed.

The symptoms of TMJ can include headaches and migraines, dizziness, a clicking or grinding sound when you eat for example, a ringing sound in your ears or even, in the worst cases, severe head, neck and ear pain.

The good news is that we can help by realigning your ‘bite’, or the way your teeth fit together when your mouth is closed. We may also recommend, for example, that you wear a bite-raising appliance during the night, to prevent the surfaces of your teeth from grinding together.

If you have any concerns about TMJ please feel free to contact us here at the clinic.
