Temporal-mandibular joint syndrome is caused by misalignment of teeth, trauma, or excess muscle tension. These problems lead to headaches, earaches, popping of the jaw joint, and pain in the jaw and face. Dental treatments for TMJ can include splint therapy, replacing missing teeth, adjusting the bite or filling gaps between teeth. If left untreated, severe cases may require surgery to repair the joint. Treatment times may vary so always consult your dental physician about the best treatment plan for you.
