The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects the mandible (Lower Jaw) to the skull.

TMJ is more common in women than men. This disorder can be treated, but its causes can vary, which is why it is difficult to diagnose.

How it Treated? In some cases, the symptoms of TMJ disorders may go away without treatment, but if symptoms persist.

Pain Relievers and Anti-inflammatories If over-the-counter medications are not helping to relieve TMJ pain

Tricyclic Antidepressants These drugs (amitriptyline) are mostly used for depression.

Counselling Education and counseling can help you understand the factors and behaviors that increase pain, so you can avoid the factors that trigger pain.
