Temporal Mandibular Joint Dysfunction

     Comments (0)
  0 comenta mail yahoo print
Description
According to the American Dental Association, more than fifteen percent of American adults suffer from chronic facial pain. We have found that 50% of our patients exhibit some signs or symptoms of TMD. Some common symptoms include headaches, cold sensitive teeth, pain in or around the ear, tenderness of the jaw, and clicking or popping noises when opening the mouth. These symptoms are commonly referred to as TMJ, or more accurately as temporal mandibular joint dysfunction. Common jaw joint symptoms include:Headaches
Facial Pain
Jaw Pain
Ear Pain
Clicking/Popping in Jaw Joints
Difficulty Chewing Inability to Bite All the Way Down
Limited Mouth Opening
Uncomfortable Bite
Changing Bite
Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
Cold sensitivity of teeth Worn-Down Teeth
Gum Recession
Clenching/Bruxing
Neck Pain
Dizziness


There are many causes of TMJ disorders including traumatic injury to the chin, jaw, or TMJ itself, missing back teeth and/or poor alignment of the jaws, poor alignment of the teeth, wisdom teeth, bruxism (night teeth grinding), chronic clenching, arthritis, stressful situations, or poor dental treatment that does not respect how the teeth come together.

Many sufferers of these symptoms have found relief with treatment offered by Dr. Fondriest. It is our goal to achieve maximum improvement with comfort and normal function, while using the least invasive and conservative treatment possible. For some patients, the ideal can be achieved, while for others, depending on the nature and stage of the illness, effective management is the maximum goal. Depending on the nature and severity of an individual patient's condition, the appropriate therapy is determined. For some, a night guard designed to relax muscles and reduce inflammation is used. For others, more comprehensive diagnostics and dental restorations are needed.

Dr. Fondriest has had extensive training in TMJ therapy at the world renowned L. D. Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, Florida, where he now works as a senior faculty member. The Pankey Institute specializes in the study of occlusion (bite) and treatment of TMJ disorders, and is considered by many to be the world's leader in research and treatment of TMJ disorders.
