Disorders of the Jaw Joint – dental information for patients

This ADA patient education pamphlet provides dental information on temporomandibular disorders (TMD). The topics discussed include: the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), causes and symptoms of TMD, and diagnosis of TMD.

The treatments for TMD are described for patients needing relief of symptoms such as jaw pain, limited jaw movements, and pain around the ears, face and neck. This leaflet can be a useful tool for patients considering undergoing medical or surgical treatment. Medications such as prescription painkillers, anti-inflammatory medication and muscle relaxants are mentioned, and surgery is discussed as an option in rare cases.

Mi-tec publishes 31 Australian Dental Association patient information brochures. The dental information is written in plain English to assist the patients’ understanding of health information and to help patients make informed decisions. The ADA patient information brochures are printed in five-colour on high-quality A4 sheets.
