Jaw Joint And Clenching in Pune

Problems with the jaw joint are very common but typically only last a few months before getting better. In some instances only the muscles are affected (myofacial pain dysfunction) whereas in others the cartilages and ligaments may also be at fault (internal derangement of temporomandibular joint).

The most common symptoms are :

Joint noise – such as clicking, cracking, crunching, grating or popping

Pain – usually a dull ache in and around the ear. The pain may radiate, ie move forwards along the cheekbone or downwards into the neck.

Headache

Limited mouth opening.

Most jaw joint problems are made worse by chewing and are aggravated at times of stress.
