Sleep clenching, which occurs while dreaming is an unconscious act. It could be a gift from Nature; a signaling method, to let us know that Nature is trying to tell us something, that is, something we fail to acknowledge. In other words, there is probably a conflict between one’s conscious and unconscious mind. Nature sends us messages via dreams, intuitions, cognitions, etc., but it 'ain't ' that easy to figure out. Most people need help from a qualified Jungian trained psychiatrist or physchologist. However, a properly trained dentist in the Tanner methods can make you comfortable. It is an unconscious act; yet, squeezing teeth together while sleeping is not always dysfunctional; that is, it is needed for the eruption process of teeth. Sleep clenching is only However, many of us have an episode of clenching that occurs and will continue until we modify our consciousness to Nature’s import. An episode can last for a long time causing a lot of problems to muscles, teeth and the structural integrity of the joint and ear chamber. The signs and symptoms of clenching may be subtle or obvious. All dentists recognize 'obvious symptoms' but the subtle ones are often over looked; yet, anyone can be taught how to recognize them. The subtle ones show us that there is trouble brewing.

Dr. Grossan's Ear, Nose and Throat Consultant Pages
Temperomandibular Joint (TMJ) Treatment: a Method that Works Temperomandibular Pain Dysfunction Syndrome or TMJ symptoms are quite common. They include local joint pain, ear ache, headache, noises and pain when you chew, and various associated muscle pains. The ability to open the mouth wide may be limited. Ordinary chewing of food may be difficult. In some patients it may be due to the teeth not being perfectly "straight". Treatment is to get a good occlusion or bite. Problem is I see patients with the most perfect bite possible with TMJ, and see patients with terrible occlusion without TMJ symptoms. In other patients I feel that it is the muscle imbalance that is of paramount importance. Correcting the bite may take care of the problem, using mirror biofeedback may also relieve the condition. In TMJ, the person opens his mouth to the side, not in the midline. There may be a noise called crepitus. This is the sound made because the joints are swollen, or the membranes are worn away or displaced. This usually means that the muscles that guide the jaw are not functioning correctly, they aren't balanced. Here correction of the bite is certainly desirable when this is the cause of the muscle imbalance. But there may be another causes. Often patients with TMJ express their stress by biting hard or gnashing their teeth. This may replace clenching the fist or sweating when tense. The more the discomfort the more they bite down or clench. The more they clench, the more the pain. The more the pain, the more the anxiety, the more they bite down, the more nervous and so on. In TMJ the person may grind his teeth in his sleep; this is most upsetting to the partner and to the dentist who has to repair the damage.

46. Temporomandibular Disorders TMJ/TMD And Facial Pain - Dr. Barry C. Cooper: Infor
The tmj joint system is unique in many ways. The left and right joints must coordinate, working at the same time for the jaw to move.
TMJ/TMD Symptoms include:
  • Headaches Facial Pain Jaw Pain Ear Pain Clicking/Popping in Jaw Joints Difficulty Chewing Limited Mouth Opening Uncomfortable bite Changing bite Tinnitus Muffled Ears Worn-down Teeth Clenching/Bruxing Neck Pain Dizziness

Temporomandibular joints The joints work with the neuromuscular system
A unique system of many parts
The proper, healthy function of the TMJ system requires normal structure and function of all the component parts, including muscles, nervous system, ligaments, joints (bones, discs and connecting tissues) and the dental occlusion.
Temporomandibular disorders (TMJ / TMDs) are often called "TMJ" by doctors, patients and even insurance companies, although the term TMJ actually refers only to the jaw joints themselves. TMD/TMJ describes a group of diseases that can involve the jaw joints, the muscles that control jaw movement and the dental occlusion. TMJ / TMDs are physical disorders arising from an imbalance in the delicate working relationship of the jaw and skull with the muscles that move the jaw, as well as the nervous system associated with these systems. This imbalance results in muscle fatigue, spasm and/or joint dysfunction, and even changes in the teeth, which in turn cause a variety of symptoms, unique for each person.

47. TMJ Syndrome - The Overlooked Diagnosis - 3. Diagnosis Of TMJ
Diagnosis of tmj is both simple and complex. This sounds paradoxical, but it isn t. The simple element is a screening process that can—and should—be a part
Diagnosis of TMJ "It's not possible that my dizziness could be caused by my teeth!" a 60-year-old businessman "Coming here is my last hope." THE VALUE OF SCREENING Although the average dental patient is seldom experiencing TMJ symptoms, a positive finding in the screening can at times be crucial. Few people who have a positive screening for TMJ will need the more complex diagnostic procedures or treatment for the condition. These are usually reserved for patients who are symptomatic or need sophisticated dental procedures. But, in a small percentage of people, just knowing they have a propensity for TMJ problems can save many years of anguish and perhaps thousands of dollars in fruitless medical investigation and treatment should they become symptomatic. A positive TMJ screening simply informs the health care professional and the patient that the patient is a potential TMJ sufferer. An example will illustrate the value of TMJ screening. Recently I received a call from Jim Murray, a former patient who'd had a positive screening for TMJ. He'd relocated to Ohio, and a few months before he decided to call me, he'd begun having regular headaches. "They started out mild, but now they're severe," he said. "I have a headache every day, and they're interfering with my life in a serious way. I can hardly make it through the day at work, let alone have a normal social life. I can trace the beginning of the headaches to a skiing accident I had. I was bruised and had a cracked rib that healed without difficulty, but shortly after the accident my headaches started. And I remembered what you told me the first time I saw you for a check-up."

Health information on Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (tmj), which has a variety of causes and is believed to result when the chewing muscles and jaw
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorders About ten million Americans suffer from such seemingly disparate symptoms as headaches, neck pain, earaches, tenderness of the jaw muscles, and/or dull, aching facial pain often share a common problem. They all suffer from what has come to be known as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. These disorders can have a variety of causes and are believed to result when the chewing muscles and jaw joints do not work together correctly. In many cases, TMJ disorders can be successfully treated. HOW THE CHEWING MUSCLES AND JAW JOINTS WORK
The structures that make it possible to open and close the mouth are very specialized and work together when you chew, speak and swallow. These structures include the muscles, ligaments, bones and joints of the jaw. Five pairs of muscles allow you to open and close your mouth. They also control forward, backward, and side-to-side movements of the lower jaw. Also involved in these movements are the temporomandibular joints. Each of these important joints has two sections, connected by a disk, that make possible the hinge and gliding actions needed to open the mouth widely (Fig. 1). Figure 1 Position of TMJ with mouth closed Position of TMJ with mouth open wide Any problem that prevents this complex system of muscles, ligaments, bones, and joints from working together properly may result in a TMJ disorder.

The tmj Society of California is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) corporation located in Sacramento, California.
WELCOME to the
Founded in May of 1994, the TMJ and Orofacial Pain Society (TOPS) of America (a 501c3 organization) is the leading voice of advocacy nationwide for those who suffer from the many faces of "TMD" - temporomandibular (joint) disorders. Grounded in purpose, the "not-for-profit" TOPS America promotes physical and emotional healing through their efforts in the following areas: exchange of experiences, emotional support, data collection, education within both the public and business sectors, public awareness of issues surrounding the treatment and recognition of the disorder, legislation to ensure effective policy coverage and treatment options for patients, and participation with national "consumer rights" coalitions for the betterment of care. Making it Law
As a direct result of TOPS America's testimony and efforts, AB 2994 - "The Jaw Joint bill" - became reality for California's consumers in July of 1995, ensuring that denials of surgical treatment for jaw joints or upper/lower jaw bones would constitute a misdemeanor if surgery were determined to be medically necessary. Since passage of AB 2994, such denials of treatment are illegal and considered discriminatory. Viewed as a major victory for sufferers of TMD, the thoroughness of testimony and data presented by TOPS America was significant AB 2994 passed with minimal opposition.

What is TMJ Syndrome?
Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ Syndrome) is an acute or chronic inflammation of the temporomandibular joint, which connects the lower jaw to the skull. TMJ Syndrome and resultant dysfunction can result in significant pain and impairment. Signs and symptoms of TMJ Syndrome vary and can be very complex. The anatomic structures affected in TMJ Syndrome are the muscles, the temporomandibular joints, and the teeth.

Infectious arthritis: Infection of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) may result from direct extension of adjacent infection or hematogenous spread of bloodborne organisms (see Infections of Joints and Bones: Acute Infectious Arthritis ). The area is inflamed, and jaw movement is limited. Local signs of infection associated with evidence of a systemic disease or with an adjacent infection suggest the diagnosis. X-ray results are negative in the early stages but may show bone destruction later. If suppurative arthritis is suspected, the joint is aspirated to confirm the diagnosis and to identify the causative organism. Diagnosis must be made rapidly to prevent permanent joint damage. Treatment includes antibiotics, proper hydration, pain control, and motion restriction. Parenteral

    What is this?
    TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Disorders
    What is the Temporomandibular Joint, or TMJ?
    The temporomandibular joints connect the jawbone to the skull. Located at the sides of the head near each ear, these joints play an essential role in eating, speaking, and making facial expressions. In fact, the temporomandibular joint ( TMJ) is one of the most frequently used and complex joints in the entire body. TMJ disorder can develop when one or both of the temporomandibular joints stop functioning properly. This may happen due to any number of causes and may result in chronic ear pain, jaw stiffness and soreness, difficulty opening the mouth, jaw popping or clicking, and headaches. Sufferers of TMJ disorder may experience either sharp pain or a dull, constant ache. Because the causes and symptoms of TMJ disorder are so varied, the condition is typically classified into three main sub-categories:
    • Myofacial pain Internal derangement of the joint Inflammatory joint disease
    Causes and Symptoms of TMJ Disorder
    Knowledge of TMJ causes and symptoms can make the condition easier to understand. However, only a trained doctor can diagnose the disorder and help sufferers make educated choices about their care.
