TMJ - Temporomandibular Joint Treatment
Located alongside the ear, the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) establishes the union of the lower jaw with the skull. Dysfunctions of this joint are, generally speaking, related with poor dental relationship problems which bring about an imbalance in the joints, muscles and ligaments. The main symptoms reported by patients are headaches, earache, eye, face and neck pain as well as difficulties chewing, buzzing, nausea and dizziness. The treatment of TMJ dysfunction involves the elimination of causal factors, meaning that there is a frequent need for coordination with orthodontic treatment, with Implantology interventions intended to replace missing teeth or with orthognathic surgery.
