Disorders of Temporomandibular Joint


The TMJ with the muscles of mastication and teeth (occlusion) constitute the essential elements of the stomatognathic system, whose function directs and coordinates central nervous system (brain). The most common disorders that can result in TMJ can be divided roughly into two categories: neuromuscular disorders and intraarticular disorders. The dentist can diagnose and deal with any pathology in the stomatognathic system area.
