|You may have heard of the term temporomandibular joint disorders. You may even know what types of problems this can cause for anyone that suffers from it. While you may have heard of TMJ that does not mean you are an expert at it. You may not realize that there are different types of TMJ. To the people who suffer from TMJ disorders, knowing what the types are is important.
Three Different Types
All the different types of TMJ share some similarities. They all focus on the area where the jaw meets the skull. The muscles and the joint can cause a variety of symptoms when they don't work right. The types of symptoms and the severity of the symptoms vary depending on the type of TMJ. It is possible to define the three categories of TMJ by the cause and the symptoms.
No matter what type of TMJ you have, there are ways to treat it. Oral appliances and changes in lifestyle can help myofascial pain. There are procedures to fix the problem of internal derangement and medications can help combat arthritis in the TMJ. It is important to discuss your problems with the TMJ with our dental professionals.
