TMJ syndrome is a group of conditions that cause pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and the muscles controlling the movement of your jaw. It affects millions of Americans. The condition is believed to be more common with women than among men.
Having some pain around the jaw joint or muscles doesn’t in itself indicate a serious problem. The discomfort can be temporary and cyclical and dissipate with little to no treatment. If however your discomfort develops into long-term symptoms such as sustained jaw pain, headaches or earaches, you should see a TMJ specialist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
