Have you ever experienced unexplained headache, difficulties when moving the jaw, neck pain and ear problems? You might be suffering from TMJ disorder.
What is TMJ?
Temporamandibular disorder is a chronic disease that results in imbalance between the jaw and the muscles that control the jaw movement. This imbalance is brought about by improper bite. This strains the joint and its tissues hence moving the jaw out of its position.
