Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD)

Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) are musculoskeletal disorders (affecting muscle, bone and joints) that cause pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement. For some people their condition causes long-term, persistent and debilitating pain, interferes with their daily life and often results in high levels of distress and anxiety. The most typical symptoms of TMD include headaches, neck pain, jaw pain with clicking or grinding, stiffness and pain when opening the mouth, biting, chewing or yawning and pain around the face or ear.
