The temporomandibular joint is the connection between the jaw and the skull, enabling chewing and speaking. TMJ disorder is a condition that can cause pain, discomfort, and limited movement in this joint. Symptoms include jaw pain, headaches, difficulty opening the mouth, and chewing. The disorder can be caused by various factors such as stress, poor chewing habits, injuries, or genetic predisposition. Diagnosis involves a physical examination, X-rays, and MRI scans. Treatment is tailored to the symptoms and may include changes in habits, medication therapy, physical therapy, and the use of splints. Managing stress and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can also help. TMJ disorder can significantly impact daily life, but with proper treatment, most people improve symptoms and joint functionality.
