    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE MILWAUKEE, Wis. (05/01/08) More than 10 million people in the United States suffer from this condition, but no medical specialty is dedicated to treating it. It can lead to severe, lifetime pain and yet no proven treatments or medications are on the horizon to cure it. The condition is temporomandibular joint disorders, or TMJ, and it refers to a group of symptoms involving pain in the face, jaw, forehead, head, neck, shoulders and teeth. The Fifth Scientific Meeting of the TMJ Association, June 1-3 at the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology in Bethesda, Md., aims to improve this bleak outlook and change the face of TMJ by presenting current research on the disorder. This year's conference will explore the connections between TMJ disorders and other pain syndromes, including chronic headache, generalized pain conditions, irritable bowel syndrome, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, vulvodynia, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and rheumatoid arthritis.

      Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Syndrome
      TMJ Syndrome Overview
      Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome or TMJ joint disorders are medical problems related to the jaw joint. The TMJ connects the lower jaw ( mandible ) to the skull ( temporal bone ) in front of the ear. Certain facial muscles control chewing. Problems in this area can cause head and neck pain , a jaw that is locked in position or difficult to open, problems biting, and popping sounds when you bite. The TMJ is comprised of muscles, blood vessels, nerves, and bones. You have two TMJs, one on each side of your jaw. Muscles involved in chewing (mastication) also open and close the mouth. The jawbone itself, controlled by the TMJ, has two movements: rotation or hinge action, which is opening and closing of the mouth, and gliding action, a movement that allows the mouth to open wider. The coordination of this action also allows you to talk, chew, and yawn.
      • If you place your fingers just in front of your ears and open your mouth, you can feel the joint and its movement. When you open your mouth, the rounded ends of the lower jaw (condyles) glide along the joint socket of the temporal bone. The condyles slide back to their original position when you close your mouth. To keep this motion smooth, a soft disc of cartilage lies between the condyle and the temporal bone. This disc absorbs shock to the temporomandibular joint from chewing and other movements. Chewing creates a strong force. This disc distributes the forces of chewing throughout the joint space.

    How are patients evaluated when TMJ problems are suspected?
    A complete dental and medical evaluation is often necessary and recommended to evaluate patients with suspected TMJ disorders. During the diagnostic process, one or more of the following conditions/tests is evaluated. Damaged jaw joints are suspected when there is popping, clicking, and grating sounds associated with movement of the jaw. Chewing may become painful, and the jaw may lock or not open widely. The teeth may be worn smooth, as well as a loss of the normal bumps and ridges on the tooth surface. Ear symptoms are very common. Infection of the ear, sinuses, and teeth can be discovered by medical and dental examination. Dental x-rays and computer tomography (CT) scanning help to define the bony detail of the joint, while

See also: Facial pain Causes Return to top There are two matching temporomandibular joints one on each side of your head, located just in front of your ears. The abbreviation "TMJ" literally refers to the joint but is often used to mean any disorders or symptoms of this region. Many TMJ-related symptoms are caused by the effects of physical and emotional stress on the structures around the joint. These structures include:
    • Cartilage disk at the joint Muscles of the jaw, face, and neck Nearby ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves Teeth
    For example, daily stress can lead you to clench and grind your teeth, both during the day and at night while you sleep. Clenching means you tightly clamp your top and bottom teeth together, especially the back teeth. The stressful force of clenching causes pressure on the muscles, tissues, and other structures around your jaw.

    TMJ is the commonly used acronym for temporomandibular joint disorder . The pain associated with TMJ is thought to be caused by displacement of the cartilage where the lower jaw connects to the skull causing pressure and stretching of the associated sensory nerves. I developed a very bad case of TMJ several years ago, along with an overall case of fibromyalgia. My jaw was so painful that I had to eat baby food at times. In looking for a cure, I bought a lot of books and spent hours on online research. I went to see many different types of practitioners, including TMJ specialists, dentists, doctors, orthopedists, an acupuncturist, chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, and more, in order to try to find a cure for my TMJ pain and overall fibromyalgia. Eventually it worked and now my pain is gone. The TMJ treatment options that helped me are listed below.

    TMJ disorders
    TMJ disorders include a variety of conditions that cause tenderness and pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Your TMJ is the ball-and-socket joint on each side of your head where your lower jawbone (mandible) joins the temporal bone of your skull. The lower jaw has rounded ends (condyles) that glide in and out of the joint socket when you talk, chew or yawn. The surfaces of the condyle and the socket of the temporal bone are covered with cartilage and separated by a small disk, which absorbs shock and keeps the movement smooth. The muscles that enable you to open and close your mouth stabilize this joint. Between 5 percent and 15 percent of people in the United States experience pain associated with TMJ disorders, according to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), part of the National Institutes of Health. Women are more likely than men to develop TMJ disorders. In most cases, pain and discomfort associated with TMJ disorders can be alleviated with self-managed care or nonsurgical treatments, but more severe cases may need to be treated with dental or surgical interventions.

    A young lady was having extreme jaw pain and it seemed she could not open her mouth nearly as wide as before. She was also getting an annoying popping and clicking sound whenever she moved her mouth. This had been going on for a year and a half. The only thing that changed in her life was that she had visited an orthodontist to have her crooked teeth straightened. Now she had a beautiful smile, but the pain was getting so bad that she had to force that smile. She took the TMJ Scale test and the results showed that she was more likely to have a TMJ problem than 64% of the patients who had already taken the test. Armed with these results, she went to a dentist that specialized in TMJ symptoms.

      The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)
      The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a small joint located in front of the ear where the skull and lower jaw meet. It permits the lower jaw (mandible) to move and function. TMJ disorders are not uncommon and have a variety of symptoms. Patients may complain of earaches, headaches and limited ability to open their mouth. They may also complain of clicking or grating sounds in the joint and feel pain when opening and closing their mouth. What must be determined, of course, is the cause.
      What Causes TMJ Disorders?
      Determining the cause of a TMJ problem is important, because it is the cause that guides the treatment. Arthritis is one cause of TMJ symptoms. It can result from an injury or from grinding the teeth at night. Another common cause involves displacement or dislocation of the disk that is located between the jawbone and the socket. A displaced disk may produce clicking or popping sounds, limit jaw movement and cause pain when opening and closing the mouth. The disk can also develop a hole or perforation, which can produce a grating sound with joint movement. There are also conditions such as trauma or rheumatoid arthritis that can cause the parts of the TMJ to fuse, preventing jaw movement altogether.

    TMD/TMJ (Temporomandibular Disorders) Overview Additional Resources
    Overview More than fifteen percent of American adults suffer from chronic facial pain. Some common symptoms include pain in or around the ear, tenderness of the jaw, clicking or popping noises when opening the mouth, or even headaches and neck aches. The TM joint is one of the most complex joints in the body. Located on each side of the head, these joints work together and can make many different movements, including a combination of rotating and translocational (gliding) action, used when chewing and speaking. Several muscles help open and close the mouth. They control the lower jaw (mandible) as it moves forward, backward, and side-to-side. Both TM joints are involved in these movements. Each TM joint has a disc between the ball and socket (see diagram). The disc cushions the load while enabling the jaw to open widely and perform rotating and translocational movements. Any problem that prevents this complex system of muscles, ligaments, discs and bones from working together properly may result in a painful TMJ disorder. Several conditions may be related to TMD, but they can be quite varied, and they are often difficult to pinpoint. TM disorders can result when the jaw muscles or jaw joints are affected.

    TMJ Symptoms FAQ
    If you've come to this page first, you might also want to review a fuller description of the "Symptoms" page.
    What are the most important symptoms I should be concerned about?
    Pain, and or Jaw "locking" episodes.
    What is a "locking" episode?
    A "locking" episode can occur during opening or closing movement. What happens is that the patient experiences an interruption of jaw movement - a "catch" or a "stop", and in order to complete the movement must jiggle, or somehow, self manipulate the jaw.
    Why does it happen?
    Referring back to my anatomy lesson, and in the simplest of terms, what is happening within the Joint is that the Articular Disk which rides on top of the Condyle Head is getting stuck in the wrong place and is preventing the Condyle Head from moving.
    If I can jiggle my jaw and reduce the dislocation, why should I be concerned?
    Because each time it happens more damage is occuring to the tissues in the Joint, and the tissues controlling the Articular Disk. As a consequence there is the risk that if the problem is not addressed by appropriate treatment, one day you will be unable to reduce the dislocation yourself, and you will require an emergency visit to a TMJ practitioner, if one is available in your community, or an oral surgeon. In severe cases, reduction can only be accomplished under general anesthesia.

The term TMJ is an abbreviation for Temporo-Mandibular Joint, or the jaw joint. In fact, there are really two TMJs, one in front of each ear. The TMJ is the joint formed by the temporal bone of the skull (Temporo) with the lower jaw or mandible (hence, mandibular). These joints move each time we chew, talk or even swallow. The TMJ is actually a sliding joint and not a ball-and-socket like the shoulder. Read More..

    TMJ Diagnosis and Treatment
    "TMJ Disorders" and "TMD" are generic terms which like any other joint in the anatomy, encompasses a whole spectrum of diseases, derangements of the articulating elements in the Joint, and injured or damaged tissues affecting the function of the Joint. Obviously, in order to treat a patient effectively, it is necessary to first find out EXACTLY what the specific problems are. There are two elements to diagnosis. The first is a comprehensive history and clinical examination. The second is a series of diagnostic studies. Each practitioner has his or her own favorites which they rely on, and which may be used either singly or in any combination. In general, the diagnostic studies available for TM Joint diagnosis and evaluation are:
    • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) Electromyography (studies of muscle function) Motion Performance Studies Joint Vibration Analysis (a form of ultra-sound sonography) X-rays of the Dentition
    The diseases which affect the TM Joints are no different, really, than the diseases which affect other joints in the human anatomy. Rheumatoid, and Osteoarthritis; Inflammation of the Joint capsule; inflammation of the Synovium; torn Ligaments; perforation, or tears in the Articular Disks; internal derangement of the Condyle Head, and or Disk, in the Joint space, and etc.
