TMJ Disease
Mayo Clinic specialists have significant experience treating disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in adults and children. Mayo Clinic uses a multidisciplinary treatment approach. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons try to find the best treatment possible for every patient, often working with specialists from pain management, neurology and physical medicine.
An evaluation begins with a thorough medical history to learn about symptoms and related medical conditions. A physical exam is performed to determine whether the problem is caused solely by the TMJ. This exam can include a complete oral, head, and neck exam (including testing the patient's bite and range of motion in the joints), a neurological exam (used more frequently for patients with severe or chronic pain), and basic X-rays, CT scans and magnetic resonance imaging, as needed.
Treatment Options
Treatment options include anti-inflammatory medications, minimally invasive "joint flushes," (arthrocentesis) and various types of TMJ surgery (arthroplasty). Read more about

TMJ Implants- A Consumer Informational Update
April 2001 Dear Reader: This is an updated introductory letter from the current 1999 TMJ implant consumer handbook entitled, "TMJ Implants - A Consumer Informational Update 1999." While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is in the process of updating the handbook, we want to provide you with some new updates and the current information. Background: The FDA's regulation of new medical devices entering the market began with the 1976 Medical Device Amendments. Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) implants are pre-Amendments devices, meaning they entered the market before 1976. This allowed sale of TMJ implants marketed before May 28, 1976 to continue without demonstrating safety and effectiveness. These devices introduced after 1976 required FDA clearance. In 1993, the Dental Products Advisory Panel reclassified them into Class III - the highest risk category. This means that all manufacturers of TMJ devices would be required to submit a Premarket Approval Application (PMA) - demonstrating safety and effectiveness - when called for by the FDA. On December 30, 1998, the FDA called for PMAs from all manufacturers of TMJ implants.

Although no specific data exists regarding the social impact of temporamandibular joint disorders, TMJ is estimated to account for as much as thirty billion dollars a year in lost productivity. Americans lose 550 million work days every year due to symptoms associated with TMJ, with facial pain and headache being the most common complaints. Accordingly, analgesics directed at these symptoms are among the top selling over the counter medicines in our society. Despite the lack specific data regarding the incidence of these disorders, much has been learned over the last decade regarding specific pathology and therapy. Generic terms such as TMJ Syndrome, or Myofascial Pain Dysfunction Syndrome (MPD Syndrome) are generally outdated. It is now possible to differentiate between true muscular disorders and those disorders with pathological changes of the temporomandibular joint.

Guide To Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) TMD is not just one disorder, but a group of conditions, often painful, that affect the jaw joint (temporomandibular joint, or TMJ) and the muscles that control chewing. TMD disorders fall into three main categories: myofascial pain, internal derangement of the joint, and degenerative joint disease, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis in the jaw joint.

What is Temporomandibular Joint Disease?
N.B. Work in progress, subject to revisions and additions.
MPD vs. Intra-articular Disease
One of the most important concepts to understand is the basic difference between true interarticular disease and the myofascial pain complex of symptoms which the lay press tends to erroneously label as TMJ. These two entities can, and often do, coexist but they are not synonymous. In patients where both are present it is almost always helpful and desireable to treat the MPD first and then address the interarticular pathology. The most notable exception to that treatment sequence is the onset of acute interarticular disease in a previously healthy joint.
Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Treatment
For MPD the majority of treatment options are non-surgical however, some consider brisement used for trismus secondary to immobilization syndrome a surgical procedure. Warmth, massage, physical therapy including range of motion exercises, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories reduction in parafunctional activity and patient education form the bulk of the treatment protocols. Many practicioners believe in the construction of intraoral "splints" of a variety of types to treat parafunction. Some purport to treat interarticular disease with these devices. The ability of such devices to treat interarticular disease is not supported by the scientific and orthopedic literature. Their efficacy in the treatment of muscle spasm/myofascial pain is perhaps a little higher but often no better than what can be obtained through the utilization of over the counter rubber mouthpieces such as are provided for high school athletes in contact sports.

WHEN JOHN , a stock analyst, came to see me about constant headaches, it seemed obvious that they were a result of the recent stock market crash. He'd had occasional headaches in the past but they had become regular and debilitating. He had been to various doctors and tried a variety of pain pills and muscle relaxants, but nothing gave more than temporary relief As he told me, he was tired of taking pills and tired of getting no results and of course he was more than tired of the headaches. When I told John he needed to adopt some stress-reduction techniques, he told me that he had tried with no results and was tired of' being told that everything was caused by stress. When I told him that I thought his problem was not caused by stress but simply worsened by it, he was surprised. It turned our that John was suffering from symptoms associated with TMJ disorder. I worked with him on reducing stress, particularly the actual stress in his jaw, recommended certain supplements, and referred him to a dentist who worked on the structural problems in his jaw. Within a few months John's headaches had completely disappeared.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)
Authored By: Lesley Ranft
Temporomandibular disorder (TMJ, TMJD or TMD) affects the temporomandibular joint, an area that includes the hinge jaw joint (the bridge for the lower jaw or mandible) and the temporal bone of the skull located in front of each ear, the muscles surrounding the jaw and the jaw itself. This area of the face contributes to chewing, bite (occlusion) and jaw movement. Therefore, TMJ disorder compromises jaw flexibility and may cause pain at rest or during common movements such as talking, chewing and yawning. The pain and discomfort caused by TMJ disorder may be severe, can be either intermittent or constant and may last for many years.
Causes of TMJ Disorder
TMJ disorder has often been portrayed as psycho-stress related, but in truth there are many different types of TMJ, any one of which may result from multiple causes. Click Here to Learn About Local Dentists: The most common factor contributing to TMJ is a bite problem affecting the joint itself. Interferences in the structure of individual teeth may force displacement of the lower jaw, leading the muscles to position the joints out of their sockets to force the upper and lower teeth to fit together. Anatomical factors within the joint or surrounding muscles (such as the presence of scar tissue) may also interfere with the bite and cause TMJ disorder. In other cases, TMJ may result from a jolting injury to the head or face. Also, wear and tear on the teeth due to aging or tooth grinding and clenching may cause uneven surfaces on the

It is estimated that 10 million Americans suffer from tmj syndrome, a condition in which the temporomandibular joint does not function properly.
What is TMJ? (Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome) More Causes Feel Your Joint You can locate the temporomandibular joint by placing your finger on that triangle of skin in the front of your ear and then moving it a tiny bit forward. You should be able to feel a small depression between bones there. Now open and close your mouth a few times to feel the motion of the joint. If this hurts, you most likely have TMJ dysfunction. Don't worry, if the pain there is bad, you may want to consult your dentist. There Is Help For TMJ Syndrome Luckily, there are a few things you can do to alleviate the pain and possibly take care of it altogether without seeing a doctor. The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery recommends trying some simple remedies. To reduce the amount of wear and injury to the joint, chew evenly (left vs. right); stop chewing gum; avoid hard chewy foods, and stop clenching, or grinding your teeth. To aid the healing processes, apply a heating pad (or some form of heat) for 20 minutes at least twice a day. Two aspirin or ibuprofen tablets can help reduce inflammation. Don't use them everyday; if the pain is that bad
