You have two TMJs (temporomandibular joints) — one on each side of your face, just in front of your ears.Your TMJs connect your lower jawbone to your skull and help with movements like chewing and speaking.At times, your jaw joints and surrounding muscles and ligaments may get affected and cause jaw pain, headaches painful clicking, popping, and difficulty in opening and closing your mouth.It may be due to jaw injury, teeth grinding, malocclusion, stress, arthritis, etc.
TMJ dysfunction affects everyone differently.TMD symptoms often go away on their own, without treatment.If you have frequent jaw pain, facial pain, headaches, or other TMJ symptoms, you may consult your dentist.
What happens if the TMJ issue is left untreated?
TMJ is not life-threatening, but it can cause continuous discomfort and strain in and around your jaw if left untreated. It's also possible that the affected joints will get inflamed, and your teeth may be damaged.
