TMJ disorder is a disorder or dysfunction of the bones, tendons, muscles or nerves in the area of the jaw joint. It is a very common medical condition. It affects over 75 million Americans and many more worldwide. Unfortunately, there are not many highly qualified TMJ dentists in the industry.
Why you need TMJ Specialists?
Regular dentists may be able to easily identify the TMJ disorder as the source of your jaw or tooth pain. But, he is ill equipped to treat it. This is because the TMJ disorder requires highly specialized diagnostic techniques as well as treatment options. There are a number of treatment options out there for TMJ disorder including TMJ physical therapy and TMJ orthodontics. A dentist may not be able to provide you the best treatment option for your condition.
Doctors, on the other hand, may be consulted if the TMJ disorder causes pain in the neck, head, shoulder or back area of the patient. But, apart from not being able to provide the correct diagnoses and treatment, doctors may not even be able to identify the source of the problem. Hence, TMJ treatment is best left to top TMJ specialists.
