In case you have been experiencing pain when trying to move your jaws or have a jaw lock, there are chances that you are suffering from a TMJ Los Angeles disorder.

The good thing is that this article will let you understand the important thing to ensure that you and the people you love get the right assistance if the need arises.

TMJ – A quick overview

What is TMJ? Temporomandibular joints are a set of joints that connect the jawbone to the skull. They are responsible for allowing or the free movement of the jaws during speaking and chewing. The TMJ is usually used to refer to the disorder affecting the joints making it difficult for the patients to speak or eat. The downside to this is that although there may be symptoms of this problem, TMJ Los Angeles is mostly diagnosed in its final stages when it has already become chronic.

Indicating signs and symptoms of TMJ

It is best to attack the infection at an early stage before getting chronic. According to experts, some signs and symptoms can be used for the early detection and prevention of the spreading of the disease. They include pain around the ear and dullness, severe headaches, blurry vision, dizziness, jaw pain and swelling around the joints. In other instances, it may affect the balance of the patient as well as cause pain around the shoulders.

It is important that you seek medical attention as soon as you detect any of the mentioned symptoms. It is also worth noting that these are not all the symptoms that may be used for the detection of TMJ. If you have any abnormality around the said joints, be sure to see a medical practitioner.

Causes of TMJ

Many causes of TMJ Los Angeles have been put forward. They vary from those that come naturally to others that can be controlled. Among the natural courses includes the non-proportional growth of the jaw around the TMJ joints. Other causes include accidents, chewing hard stuff, injuries on the ace around the TMJ joints and too much grinding of teeth, among others. During the treatment process, it is important to find the cause first.

Is there a treatment for TMJ?

The different causes of TMJ necessitate different kinds of treatment for each. That is why, as mentioned earlier, the doctor will have to identify the cause first before proceeding to treat the patient. However, there is always need to relieve the patients from the discomfort to make it possible for treatment and rehabilitation. Anti-inflammatory drugs are administered to reduce the swelling and relieve the pain. This would make it possible for the doctor to examine the condition.

It is imperative to note that early detection of the TMJ condition will go a long way into reducing its effect. In the instance that reconstructive medication is required, the patient will have to undergo surgery. This is aimed at restructuring the joint to make it easy or the patient to chew and speak.
