Drug Induced Bruxism

The authors of this article state that orofacial movement disorders (bruxism) are treated typically by dental professionals and not by those specialists (neurologists) researching and treating the other movement disorders (Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, tremors, etc.). Again, this is more evidence of the complexity of TMD and the need for multidisciplinary research and treatment in TMD.

You, Your Esophagus and TMD

The esophagus is a roughly ten-inch hollow tube that descends from your throat through the diaphragm into the stomach. Normally, it is a one-way street transporting food you swallow to the stomach for digestion. But in GERD— Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease— the flow can reverse so that stomach contents (including gastric acids) are regurgitated upwards to cause a burning sensation (heartburn), nausea, pain and other distressing symptoms.

It's Time to Be Part of the Solution

The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) Study on Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) is well underway. We strongly encourage everyone affected by TMD to write to the NAM committee letting them know what it is like to live with TMD and your experiences with getting care.

TMJ COMMUNITY - A NEW HOPE

  • May 22, 2018

Since we launched our renewed efforts at www.TMJ.org, our Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter pages have seen a steady increase in the numbers and variety of people visiting the site(s). It's great to see that there are new faces out there coming to us in these new ways and sharing their experiences and strength with the rest of the community.

For over 25 years we've been so focused on those individuals that were directly suffering, supporting them, informing them, fighting for them - that we did not spend much time on the rest of the picture.

Our hope is that everyone that visits the site or our social media sites will become part of the TMJ Community. You don't have to suffer from these disorders yourself to empathize and support those that do. Friends, family members, co-workers and managers: everyone has a role in supporting sufferers and demanding effective research and treatments for TMJ disorders.
