Article Excerpts about Temporomandibular disorders

Temporomandibular disorders are conditions in which the temporomandibular joint (the jaw) is damaged and/or the muscles used for chewing and talking become stressed, causing pain. The condition may be the result of a number of factors, such as an injury to the jaw or joint misalignment, and may give rise to a variety of symptoms, most commonly pain in the jaw, face, and/or neck muscles. Physicians reach a diagnosis by listening to the patient's description of the symptoms and by performing a simple examination of the facial muscles and the temporomandibular joint.

TMD, or temporomandibular disorders, are a group of conditions affecting the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and the muscles involved in chewing. These disorders occur more frequently in women than men, and it has been estimated that approximately 10 million women in the USA suffer from chronic face or jaw joint pain. There are many possible causes of these disorders, and diagnosis can be confusing and difficult. Treatment is usually conservative and reversible, and may require many different medical specialists. Occasionally injections and surgery are necessary for chronic pain and disability. (Source: excerpt from TMD-TMJ (Jaw Disorders): NWHIC)
