Difficulty Chewing

TMJ Difficulty Chewing

Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ) can significantly impact the act of chewing, causing discomfort and other symptoms that may affect your daily life. The temporomandibular joint acts as a hinge and sliding joint, connecting your jawbone to your skull. This complex system of muscles, ligaments, discs, and bones allows for the movements required for talking, yawning, and chewing. When TMJ disorders occur, they can disrupt this harmony, leading to difficulty and pain while chewing. Here’s how TMJ affects chewing: pain in the jaw, limited range of motion, clicking or popping noises, lockjaw, ear pain, headaches and worn teeth and dental issues. Understanding these symptoms and their potential impact on your daily life is the first step towards seeking help.
