Homeopathy Medicine for Tmj Disorder
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which is located in front of the ears on both sides of the head and connects the mandible (lower jaw) to the skull, allows us to speak and eat by allowing our jaw to open and close.
SYMPTOMS OF TMJ DISORDER
TMJ disorders can show these signs and symptoms:
- Jaw discomfort or sensitivity
- Tempromandibular joint discomfort, either in one or both joints
- Our ear is hurting, especially around it.
- chewing is painful or challenging
- Aching facial pain
- difficulty opening or closing our mouth due to the joint locking
If there is no pain or restriction of motion associated with our jaw clicking, one probably does not need treatment for a TMJ disorder. TMJ disorders can also cause a clicking sound or grating sensation when we open our mouths or chew.
CAUSES OF TMJ DISORDER
The temporomandibular joint combines sliding and hinge movements; the cartilage-covered bones that come together in the joint are separated by a small shock-absorbing disk, which typically keeps the movement fluid.
TMJ disorders that are painful can develop if
- The disk deteriorates or veers away from the correct alignment.
- Atherosclerosis damages the cartilage in the joint.
- A blow or other impact causes the joint to become damaged.
Following are some factors that could raise your risk of developing TMJ issues:
- Several types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
- Jaw injury
- long-term (chronic) teeth clenching or grinding
- The temporomandibular joint may experience issues due to specific connective tissue diseases.
