TMJ, Jaw Problems

The Temporomandibular Joints or TMJ is a joint that basically connects the jaw with the skull. They act as a sliding hinge and there is one on either side of the jaws. Disorders in the TMJ would cause problems in the jaw functions and hence disrupt your food intake.

TMJ Disorders can be caused by a range of different issues. It might be genetics, arthritis or an injury to the jaw. In some cases, the patient suffering from TMJ would tend to go grind their teeth and jaws. This is called Bruxism.

Does Invisalign Solve TMJ?

Well, Invisalign clear aligners have been proven to give some relief to patients suffering from TMJ issues. However, there are cases where they might not be of any effect. In such cases, surgical corrections or other medical treatment might be recommended. This is the reason why it is recommended that you get properly diagnosed before you think about any particular course of action.
