TMJ is the joint that allows the union between the jaw and the skull (temporal bone) is composed of several anatomical structures that allows all mandibular movements.

As the causes of TMJ disorders are many, the symptoms of this disorder are also quite varied and, on some occasions, confused with other health conditions, another point to be emphasized is that since it’s a non-popular disease it’s difficult to diagnose at an early stage, although this type of dysfunction is increasing rapidly among the adult population.
To know whether or not you need to resort to a TMJ treatment, these are some of the most common initiators:
- Facial and muscle pain
- Joint pain (pain at the level of the ear)
- Articular noises (thighs in the jaw)
- Alteration in the mandibular movements (Limitation to opening)
- Headaches, neck or back pain
- Otic symptoms, tinnitus and vertigo (dizziness)

TMJ Disorder Treatments
Sometimes people believe that the TMJ symptoms can go away without any treatment or perhaps using at-home remedies.
Some of these persons believe that by chewing soft food, they can reduce the pain in their jaws.
So patients begin to eat more yogurt, soups, and smoothies, among other foods and add some little jaw exercises to rest on the jaw.
The treatment of the first choice consists of the placement of a transparent acrylic device, removable, non-invasive, easy to make, and use that has as main objective to relax the facial muscles and modify the information proprioceptive, as well as establishing a functional artificial occlusion (bite-stable).
Keep in mind that none of these treatments can be the final solution, but perhaps they may heal and reduce the symptoms.
You must also be prepared because surgery is required to fix the problems with the patient’s jaw in some cases.
Don’t be afraid of this; there are rare cases where surgery has been required to relieve this condition’s symptoms.
In some cases, once the patient’s jaw position stabilizes, it is necessary to perform an orthodontic treatment to improve the upper and lower arch’s teeth’ relationship and achieve occlusal and functional stability.

What Patients Say
Had a great experience. Went in to have 3rd molars extracted. Had them both out in about 10 minutes! Felt very comfortable there. They have underground parking, so you don’t have to leave your car on the street. The price was great (compared to U.S. costs). They were very professional. I’ll be back soon for the other side!
Again I have to say the best place for dental work. Amazing staff, dentists, and assistants. I’m a huge chicken when it come to dental work. Not once did I feel uneasy or even pain. I had 8 lower teeth pulled. Go back in November for implants.
