Temporomandibular joint disorders may involve a number of structures--muscles, cartilage, nerves, teeth and blood vessels. Symptoms can be quite varied and include jaw pain, ear pain, limited mouth opening and clicking sounds. Treatment is often conservative, utilizing a combination of night guards, stress reduction, heat therapy and massage. Medications used may include muscle relaxants and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories.
Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are disorders of the jaw muscles, temporomandibular joints, and/or the nerves associated with chronic facial pain.
