TMJ treatment

What is TMJ?

The TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is where the lower jaw connects with the skull. It articulates each time you eat, speak or swallow. Thus it is one of the most active joints in the whole body.

You can feel the joint by placing fingers in front of your ear canals and opening and closing your mouth. You can also feel the movement of the joint by inserting fingers into the ear canals, pushing them forward and opening and closing your mouth. If you have a TMJ disorder, this exercise may be painful. Sadly, most of the symptoms occur not in the area of the joint.


Causes of TMJ disorders



  • Crowded or missing teeth, improper treatment, including orthodontic treatment.


  • Improper habits formed in childhood, when the jaw moves back during swallowing.
  • Multifunctional harmful habits, such as tooth grinding (bruxism) and mouth-breathing.
  • Stress caused by clenching or grinding teeth.


  • Improper jaw growth, disparity of jaw size;
  • trauma, e.g. falling or car accidents (neck trauma is common);
  • degenerative disorders, such as osteoarthritis.

How does the TMJ system work?

  • The TMJ system comprises of a series of soft oral appliances made to diagnose TMJ disorders and relieve the pain.
  • The appliances are thicker in the back; it reduces the load to jaw joints.
  • The appliance also adjusts jaw position, stretches tense muscles around the joint, face and neck, thus reducing pain. Wearing the appliance long-term the pain is also reduced for a longer period. An aerodynamically-shaped base and double sided design prevents bruxism (tooth grinding).
