Temporomandibular joint disorders may involve a number of structures in the jaw joint.
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.
