TMJ dysfunction

TMJ dysfunction

Many headaches and earaches have their source in an uneven bite or a pathological joint, oftentimes produced by nighttime bruxism (grinding or clenching of the teeth). The common symptoms are noise or clicks in the joint area, located just before the ears, when the mouth is opened. Molar or jaw pain in the morning is also noted.

To treat these alterations, it is necessary to even the occlusion and many times the use of a mouthguard is necessary (a hard, transparent, removable acrylic form for the mouth), which offers relaxation of the masticatory muscles.
