    Basics - Overview

    The TMJ: "TMJ" stands for TemporoMandibular Joint, or the jaw joint. You have two TMJs, one in front of each ear, connecting the lower jaw bone (the mandible) to the skull. The joints allow movement up and down, side to side, and forward and back—all the mobility necessary for biting, chewing and swallowing food, for speaking and for making facial expressions.

    TMJ Diseases/Disorders: Temporomandibular joint diseases and disorders, commonly called TMJ, are a collection of poorly understood conditions characterized by pain in the jaw and surrounding tissues and limitations in jaw movements. Injury and conditions that routinely affect other joints in the body, such as Arthritis, also affect the temporomandibular joint.

    Who is Affected by TMJ Diseases/Disorders: The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) states that over 10 million people in the United States suffer from TMJ problems at any given time. While both men and women experience TMJ problems, the majority of those seeking treatment are women in their childbearing years.

    Causes: Not all causes are known. Some possible causes or contributing factors are injuries to the jaw area, various forms of Arthritis, dental procedures, genetics, hormones, low-level infections, auto-immune diseases, stretching of the jaw as occurs with inserting a breathing tube before surgery, and clenching or grinding of the teeth.

    Diagnosis: Diagnosing TMJ diseases and disorders can be difficult and confusing. For example, facial pain can be a symptom of many conditions, such as sinus or ear infections, decayed or abscessed teeth, various types of headache, and facial neuralgia (nerve-related facial pain).

    At present, there is no widely accepted, standard test to correctly identify all TMJ conditions. In most cases, however, a complete evaluation, including a detailed medical history, the patient’s description of symptoms, and physical examination of the head, neck, face and jaw provide information useful for making a diagnosis.

    Tests that are recommended are often intended to rule out other possible medical conditions. A diagnosis of TMJ diseases and disorders may be made only after every other possibility has been considered and eliminated. Many TMJ patients see multiple healthcare providers, such as primary care physicians, dentists, sleep specialists, ear, nose and throat specialists, neurologists, endocrinologists, rheumatologists, pain specialists, chiropractors, etc., in their search for answers.

    Before undergoing any costly diagnostic test, it is always wise to get an independent opinion from another healthcare provider of your choice and one not associated with your current provider.


    Progression of TMJ Diseases and Disorders: Some TMJ problems improve on their own, without treatment, within weeks or months with simple home therapy. For others, symptoms worsen over time and develop into long-term, persistent and debilitating pain. Most people with TMJ problems have relatively mild or periodic symptoms.

    Symptoms: Pain is the most common symptom. TMJ pain is often described as a dull aching pain in the jaw joint and nearby areas, including the ear, which comes and goes. Some people, however, report no pain, but still have problems using their jaws. Other symptoms can include:
    • Being unable to open the mouth comfortably
    • Clicking, popping or grating sounds in the jaw joint
    • Locking of the jaw when attempting to open the mouth
    • Headaches
    • A bite that feels uncomfortable or “off”
    • Neck, shoulder and back pain
    • Swelling on the side of the face

    Additional symptoms may include: ringing in the ears, ear pain, decreased hearing, dizziness and vision problems.

    Keep in mind that occasional discomfort in the jaw joint or chewing muscles is common, and is not always a cause for concern. Many people with certain TMJ problems get better without treatment. Often the problem goes away on its own in several weeks to months. However, if the pain is severe and lasts more than a few weeks, see your healthcare provider.

    Treatment: Because most common jaw joint and muscle problems are temporary, lasting only weeks or months, simple care is all that is usually needed to relieve the discomfort. Self-care practices, for example, eating soft foods, applying ice or moist heat, and avoiding extreme jaw movements (such as wide yawning, loud singing, and gum chewing) are useful in easing symptoms.

    Unfortunately, treatments are based largely on beliefs that are not grounded in thorough scientific research. As a result, some patients are made worse by these treatments.


    Insurance Coverage: Many medical and dental insurance plans do not pay for treatment of jaw joint and muscle disorders, or only pay for some procedures. Until the causes of the various TMJ diseases and disorders have been discovered, and quality science demonstrates that treatments are effective without causing harm, insurance companies will not recognize treatments that have questionable outcomes. Contact your insurance company to see which treatments are covered.

    Can TMJ Diseases/Disorders be Prevented?: Patients who are told they should undergo treat-ment(s) to prevent the development of a TMJ problem should know that there is currently no evidence that such conditions can be prevented.

    Good morning fellas. Nice, but shaky, Brew Crew win last night.

    TMJ sucks. My sister had it, she had to have surgery for it, had all kinds of problems getting her insurances to cover it, plus it wasn't completely fixed.

    I got it to a degree, but for now, it doesn't kill me. I am pretty sure it is were my "more often than not" morning headaches come from.

    my doc warned me about that. He said if i dont see improvement within 48 hours, we will have to take the next step and he said, hes doesnt understand why, but depending on my plan, i may or may not be covered for it.

    My buddy Scott has it. Everytime I sit next to him and we are out eating his jaw pops when he chews and his teeth come together. It sounds like someone lightly snapping their fingers. Very annoying to me.

    He says it doesnt hurt but its annoying because he can hear it to. He said it sounds like he water in his ear. He refuses to fix it.

    Ive stopped eating with him.
