TMJ Orthopedic Dysfunction

TMJ Orthopedics to Relieve Persistant Dysfunction

TMJ-related orthopedic dysfunction is a condition that affects the jaw joint, or temporomandibular joint. Its prevalence within the population is estimated to range between 5%-12%. Symptoms of TMJ can include difficulty chewing, clicking or popping sounds when the mouth is opened or closed, headaches, pain in the jaw and face area, dizziness and an inability to open the mouth fully. Since various factors may play a role in causing this disorder to develop, seeking professional help from an orthopedic specialist is advised for proper assessment and treatment.
