Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, also known as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) or temporomandibular disorder, refers to a group of conditions that affect the temporomandibular joint and cause pain with moving the jaw such as talking, chewing, and yawning.

TMJ dysfunction can involve various issues related to the muscles, ligaments, discs, and bones in the temporomandibular joint. Common signs and symptoms of TMJ dysfunction may include:

  1. Pain or discomfort: This can be in the jaw joint, around the ear, in the face, or in the temples.
  2. Difficulty or pain while chewing: This may be accompanied by a clicking or popping sound when opening or closing the mouth.
  3. Locking of the jaw: Some people may experience difficulty fully opening or closing their mouths.
  4. Muscle spasms: Tightness or spasms in the jaw muscles.
  5. Headaches: TMJ dysfunction can contribute to headaches, particularly tension headaches.
  6. Ear pain: Pain or discomfort in the ear, even though the ear itself may be healthy.
  7. Changes in bite: Some individuals may notice changes in how their upper and lower teeth fit together.

In this webinar, you will learn a straight-forward approach to assessing and treating TMJ pain and dysfunction. This is a comprehensive webinar that includes lecture, demo, and Q&A. Also included is a case study to help illustrate the clinical thinking behind assessing and treating a TMJ patient.
