What is the TMJ?
Temporomandibular joint, is the one that joins the jaw to the skull.
This joint allows us to eat, speak, bite, in short it allows jaw movements. The two right and left joints must work in unison, a fact that adds complexity to their pathology and treatments.
Which situations are harmful for the TMJ?
- Bruxism, clenching and / or grinding of the teeth. Always of nervous origin due to stress. We treat the consequences of bruxism on the teeth and on the joint.
- Joint diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout.
- Frequently repeated eccentric and abusive movements of the jaw, such as forcing the mouth open and the lower jaw protrusion (nail biting)
- Falls and facial trauma.
