If you struggling with pops, clicks, aches, or pain in your jaw, then we invite you to schedule a free exam and consultation at one of our state-of-the-art orthodontic offices in Colorado.

What is the Difference Between TMJ and TMD?

We often hear patients referring to their jaw pain as “having TMJ.” However, TMJ refers to the specific “temporomandibular joint,” while TMD describes the pain you experience in this joint, as a result of “temporomandibular disorder.”

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a small joint located in front of the ear where the skull and lower jaw meet, allowing the lower jaw to move. The teeth on your upper and lower jaws typically work in pairs, so when you chew or bite down, the pressure on your joint is distributed evenly. TMD can occur if crooked or missing teeth cause you to have an uneven bite balance. Chronic tooth grinding also causes TMD, due to excessive pressure on the joints of your jaw causing irritation and inflammation.

Symptoms of TMD

Patients with TMD can experience a number of different symptoms. You should consult our Edwards, Frisco, Lafayette and Arvada orthodontist, if you experience any of the following:

  • Jaw pain
  • Earaches
  • Trouble opening or closing your mouth
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds when you move your jaw

While TMD is a common cause of persistent jaw pain, it’s not the only one. Other possible reasons for jaw pain can include tooth decay, infections and abscesses, gum disease, and other issues. If you are experiencing jaw pain, the best way to identify the underlying cause and find relief is to see our orthodontist at Bishop Orthodontics.
