Joint Effort

The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) connect the lower jaw to the skull (temporal bone) under each ear. These joints are among the most complex in the body. As the mouth opens, the knob-like ends (condyles) of the mandible first rotate, then slide forward along the curving lower edges of the temporal bones. The motion of the joints is controlled by the chewing muscles. The joints are also greatly affected by the teeth, which largely determine the relationship of the jaws when the mouth is closed. TMJ disorder produces symptoms ranging from headaches to clicking sounds when the jaw is opened and closed. Because malocclusion (bad bite) may be a contributing factor to TMJ syndrome, the dentist may help remedy it by aligning the misaligned teeth. Call 949-273-4575 for courtesy consultation.
