Temporomandibular disorders (TMD), commonly called TMJ (for temporomandibular joint), can cause intense jaw pain, headaches, difficulty chewing, popping of the ears or jaw, headaches and other discomforts.
If left untreated, TMD can become a constant source of painful irritation. However, even long-standing TMD can be monitored and treated by dental professionals to alleviate discomfort. Modern techniques and appliances, such as dental guards and teeth adjustments based on impressions can often provide relief.
