TMJ Disorders

Last Updated on Tuesday, 20 December 2016 14:20

TMJ Disorders

3d rendered illustration - jaw bone-

Our two TMJ’s (temporomandibular joints) - one on each side of our head in front of the ears allow the jaw to open and close, move side to side, forward and backward. Unlike any other joints of the body, these joints generally move at the same time. When one or both aren't functioning properly, it is referred to as "dysfunction". This is commonly caused by the displacement of the cartilage (disc).

Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders (TMDs) refer to a complex set of conditions that can cause pain in the area of the jaw joint and associated muscles and/or problems using the jaw. Both or just one of the TM joints may be affected.

TMDs can affect a person's ability to speak, eat, chew swallow, make facial expressions and even breathe. When untreated, it can cause other parts of the face, head and neck to hurt, even though the tissues are intact and do not have a problem themselves.

Causes of TMD

Not all causes are known for TMD. The most common cause is bruxism (grinding), or clenching of the teeth in our sleep. There is new evidence showing a relationship with bruxism as a 'protective mechanism' to keep our airway open while we sleep and prevent us from stopping breathing; 

Other factors include dental procedures, Arthritis, injuries, genetics, hormones, low-level infections, autoimmune diseases, and even stretching of the jaw that occurs with inserting a breathing tube before surgery.


TMD patient statistics

It's been estimated that up to 30% of adults will experience TMD at some point in their lives.

Recent research indicates that more women seek medical care for a TMJ problem than men. Physiologically Women process pain in a completely different way to men using different pain signal mechanisms. This may explain why more women suffer from TMJ conditions than men.

Children also suffer from TMD.


How TMJ Disorder is diagnosed?

Image of forward head posture

TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre philosophy is consistent with the scientific literature documenting the co-existence of TMJ disorders and headaches with airway obstruction and sleep disordered breathing. Our initial clinical examination always includes:

  • Oral exam with airway evaluation
  • Medical, trauma, and drug history
  • Nutritional analysis
  • Vitals
  • Mandibular and cervical ranges of motion
  • Postural, skeletal evaluation
  • Muscle, tendon and ligament palpations
  • Motor Nerve Reflex Testing

This all helps us arrive at an accurate diagnosis. We usually see patients that have already been to see multiple health professionals before they walk through our doors. Due to the thorough nature of our record taking and diagnosis we can usually help you find the answers you are looking for right from the outset.


Treatment for TMD

We at the TMJ and sleep therapy Centre of Devon provide an individualized treatment plan for each of our patients. This may include day and/or night appliances, Chiropractic referral, ENT referral, Nutritional advice or Orthodontics or physical therapies using lasers or medications to correct acute pain. Diagnosis is key. It is for this reason our initial appointment takes between 1-2 hours so that all parameters are evaluated.


Facial Pain
We look very closely at the trigeminal nerve system, which is the main sensory nerve system running through your head and accounts for 90% of all the sensory input into the entire nervous system. This may explain why TMD can sometimes become debilitating for its sufferers. Many patients seek treatment for craniofacial pain due to recurrent migraines, however 90% of headaches are caused by disorders in the facial muscles and nerves. Jaw asymmetry affects the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, bones, and connective tissue in the jaw. Patients are often diagnosed with atypical facial pain or trigeminal neuralgia. 
We find patients with a sliding scale of different symptoms from dull ache to a sharp stabbing pain in the muscles from everyday activities like chewing.


Jaw Pain
There are very important nerves that supply the jaw joint, and when they are inflamed, they can cause anything that those nerves supply to hurt, even though there is no damage to that area! 

This is called Central Sensitization, and the reason why chronic pain is so challenging to eliminate. The inflamed nerves aren't addressed at an acute stage so when the pain transitions to a chronic state any nerve that related to the Trigeminal System can now hurt. This is why TMJ is often labeled the Great Impostor.


Clicking or Popping in Jaw Joints
This is the most common symptom of TMD. Usually the cause of the popping jaw is a displaced disc in the jaw joint. These joints are ball and socket joints, just like the shoulder joint. During proper function the ball and socket have a cushion in the form of a thin disc of cartilage located between them. This disc of cartilage is held in place and by muscle and ligaments to make sure there is no bone- on bone contact. 

There may or may not be pain in the jaw when the clicking or popping sound is heard. Sometimes the sounds may even be so loud that it is audible to others when chewing or having a conversation.

Incorrect biting patterns or trauma can result in damaged tissues causing the joint to be pulled out of alignment, and the disc is typically pulled forward or the attachments to it impaired. The bones now are rubbing against each other and pressing on nerves, causing pain in the jaw and joint sounds. The strain often causes added pain in the jaw and face as well as in the head, neck, back and shoulders.


Limitations in Jaw Movement /Lock Jaw
Limited jaw movement or locking jaw may feel like the lower jaw is "catching" when the jaw is opened. In some cases a person with a locked jaw must move the jaw to one side or the other in order to open the mouth wide. A person might also have to open the mouth until a popping sound is heard and felt, at which point their jaw unlocks. This is most commonly felt in the mornings, but is not mandatory. A subluxated TMJ can result in locking jaw, clicking or popping in the jaw, and eventually, headaches, ear pain, tinnitus, tooth pain and etc.


Anxiety and Depression
Due to a lot of misdiagnosis or outright dismissal with no physical cause detected, unfortunately, many people that suffer with TMD also suffer from depression.

Scientific evidence that shows that patients with chronic pain which is a symptom nearly all TMD patients have, have chemical changes in the brain as a result of the pain. These chemicals can cause depression. Because TMJ is a multifaceted disorder, many patients need to work with more than one specialist to return to optimal health.

Posture

Spinal pain- posture

The posture and bite are intimately related. Picture a postural chain with the feet at one end and the teeth at the other. When the upper and lower teeth are closed together, each tooth actually forms a skeletal relationship with its opposing tooth. In turn, this bite determines and position of your jaw and the position of your head on your spine. Poor posture places unnecessary wear and tear on the joints. It can also cause the muscles to suffer. Symptoms that are specific to a poorly postured bite include:.

  • One shoulder being higher than the other
  • Altered gait

When your posture is incorrect, you may notice pant legs that must be hemmed to different lengths or shoe heels that wear unevenly. The majority of people carry their head too far forward. This places tremendous strain on the muscles of the shoulders, back, neck and head. Because the average human head weighs 15 pounds, with each inch the head is held forward it adds 15 more pounds. Further, the shoulders roll forward and the jaw is pulled back. Treatment for poor posture is normally treated with physical therapy. Therapists stretch muscles which have become shortened over time. When your bite is involved with a postural problem the dentist must correct with a properly fabricated orthotic so muscles, bones and teeth can function without strain and tension.

Numbness or Tingling in Hands / Arms
What most people don’t know is the common link between subluxations in the cervical spine (the top end of the spine that connects with the base of your skull) and TMD. During our diagnosis we can determine which one came first. When the cervical spine is subluxated (out of position), it compresses the nerves that supply the muscles of the neck and arms. The group of nerves that affect he arms and down into the hands are a branch off what we call the brachial plexis. This can result in a numb or tingling sensation in the affected area.


Mystery Tooth Pain

Mystery Jaw Pain

Teeth may become sensitive because of clenching or grinding. However there can also be pain due to inflamed muscles. These can 'refer' pain to the teeth, and treating the cause can relieve the tooth pain. Unfortunately, when seeking relief from this tooth pain many patients are misdiagnosed and some common treatments include having the nerve from the tooth removed with root canals or even having the tooth extracted. This may not relieve the pain, and can actually make it worse! We now know that patients with sleep disorders also have muscle spasms in their airway. One entrance to your airway is through your mouth. If this is the case it can also result in what feels like jaw pain or tooth pain as the area in which we have muscle spasms correlate directly with the area the pain is felt. This again emphasizes the need for a correct diagnosis from the outset.


Scalloping of the tongue

Mystery Jaw PainThis is very common in suffers with a jaw joint issue as they use their tongue as a water bed to brace their jaw. This creates the marks on the side of their tongue known as “scalloping”.

Ringing in the Ears

This is shown to be 70% predictive of Tinnitus

In many cases ringing in the ears is due to dislocated or 'clicking' or 'locking' jaw joint. The ligaments that connect the jaw joint with the malleus of the ear are put under extra tension and this pull can cause all sorts of different sounds in the ears from feeling like your ears are blocked to ringing. This is not detectable by an audiologist and therefore many are misdiagnosed or left untreated. Clinical studies have confirmed the efficacy in treating the jaw alleviating these symptoms.

Clenching/Grinding of Teeth/stress/sleep- the link

Stop Bruxism

Clenching or Grinding in our sleep (Bruxism) is now classified as a neurologic sleep movement disorder. This disorder is very damaging to the teeth and the Jaw Joints, and also causes fatigue and pain to the facial muscles. For years the theory that we are brushing too hard and wearing our teeth away or that we are stressed was the most common diagnosis for Bruxism. The fact that our teeth are one of the strongest bones in our bodies was dismissed and we were convinced that a toothbrush could cause this amount of destruction. 

Stress still remains a contributing factor, however research has shown with the aid of sleep studies, extremely strong muscle activity right before or during Sleep Apnoea events. It is thought that this is a protective mechanism in order to maintain an airway and allow us to continue breathing. We obviously feel stress when this occurs as our bodies are fighting to keep breathing- it’s a fight for survival. If this activity continues day after day and night are night we can cause changes to our nervous system, which in turn can cause us to feel “stressed”. This remains until we address the issue and allow the body to heal and therefore bring back our nervous systems to normal function and restore the balance. Our bodies are not very good at determining emotional vs. structural stresses and traditionally we build teeth up to restore the structure. But without addressing the issue it just masks the problem for a short while and can often make it worse.

Minor Surgery

Last Updated on Wednesday, 16 November 2016 11:48

Very often patients are unable to have minor skin surgeries due to NHS funding and GP time constraints.

The minor surgeries offered by Ros Medics are:

  • Mole removal
  • Cyst removal
  • Lipoma removal
  • Keratosis removal
  • Skin tag removal
  • Wart removal
Why through Ros Medics?

The removal of the above lesions are generally no longer available through the NHS via GP practices.

Consultation is of paramount importance to ascertain the suitability of removal and mutual agreement with patient and clinician. An appoint would be booked upon agreement. Often the surgery can be performed within the consultation time. The surgery would be performed in a purpose-built room by an accredited medical practitioner.

The consultation would include past medical history, medication history, family history and revolve around patients general health. The patient will be encouraged to ask questions at this stage so that they can make an informed decision as to the nature of the procedure.

The procedure will involve use of local anaesthetic (numbing of the area to be excised) and in accordance with good practice guidelines, all the lesions will be sent to the histopathology department at theUniversity Hospital of Wales to be analysed.nd epidermal cysts. Your clinician will advise you accordingly during consultation.

What to expect after treatment

Following any minor surgical procedure, it is highly likely that there will be bruising, bleeding and minor localised irritation. Scarring will occur and will usually fade in time but can be come darkened or raised depending on skin type, patient age and location. Infection is very rare but advice will be given post operatively.

Recurrence can occur with any type of lesion but the rate is higher with sebaceous cysts, lipomas and epidermal cysts. Your clinician will advise you accordingly during consultation.
 
Clinicians

All of our clinicians are vetted by Dr Ros and her exacting standards. They are accredited, experienced practitioners. In most cases, Ros herself will perform minor surgeries (please advise at time of booking for service from Dr Ros)

Consultation

During the consultation, Ros or an appropriate clinician will discuss general health, patient concerns and patient expectations and manage them accordingly. When it is mutually decided that the lesion in question is to be removed. The clinician will explain the whole procedure and any side effects/scarring that may occur. At this stage, you will be asked to sign a consent form. A consultation fee will still be applicable if a procedure is contraindicated.

The Procedure

Once you are happy that all your questions have been answered effectively, you will be asked to release your signed consent form to the clinician and you will be prepped for minor surgery.
During procedure, the area is cleansed using an antibacterial agent, the area will be locally anaesthetised by the use of lidocane. The infiltration of the anaesthetic will cause a localised stinging sensation. The anaesthetic generally wears off a few hours. The clinician can use a variety of techniques to remove skin lesions including excising, snipping and cautery.

You will then be advised to see your district nurse at your local GP surgery for the removal of stitches. Post-procedure, you may experience a degree of discomfort for which you can take simple analgesics such as paracetamol and ibuprofen. The excised lesion will be analysed by a local cellular pathology professionals. The results will be sent to your GP.

Silhouette Soft Thread Lift

Last Updated on Wednesday, 16 November 2016 11:45

Facial Thread Lifts

Facial lift provides immediate redefinition of facial contours, volume definition and skin tightening by the use of bi-directional silhouette Soft sutures (thread).

Areas Treated

Areas treated are:

  • Mid face and jaw line
  • Jaw line and neck
  • Neck
  • Eyebrow
The Procedure

The treatment provides lifting action with the physical presence of bidirectional cones on the thread (suture) providing traction and fixation for subcutaneous tissues.

The thread is inserted under sterile conditions through the skin and into the subcutaneous tissue along predefined vectors, providing the best lift

The procedure is performed by only trained doctors and does not require incision or stitches. The total procedure including consultation will take 90 minutes.

An ideal patient is one who has a drop in the mid face (mid face skin ptosis), loss of malar volume (loss of cheek definition), formation of early jowls, early formation of neck sagging and dropping eyebrows.

Products We Use
  • Silhouette Soft Threads

 

Silhouette Soft Threads

More information on the product used for this treatment.

  •  What is Silhouette Soft

    Silhouette Soft® is a new technology with a double lifting and regenerating effect, through the action of re-­?absorbable sutures with bidirectional cones.

    Made in the USA, Silhouette Soft® was developed on the back of 6 years of experience in the use of suspension sutures with cones in reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.

    It is made of polylactic and glycolic acids. These components are totally re-­absorbable in 18-­24 months.

  •  How does it work?

    Two actions:

    • A lift action for immediate yet discreet results: as soon as the treatment is carried out, the physician is able to redefine the focused area by compressing and lifting the tissue thanks to the bidirectional and re-­absorbable cones.
    • A volume action for gradual and natural results: re­absorption of the filament component, polylactic acid, helps skin boost its natural collagen, thus further redefining the feature being treated. SILHOUETTE SOFT® is the only product on the aesthetic market combining these two actions.
  •  The process

    The procedure can be carried out in just thirty minutes, under local anesthetic, atthe doctor’s practice. The treatment should be administered by a physician trained on Silhouette Soft sutures. One or more sutures can be necessary according to the area to be treated.

    SILHOUETTE SOFT® can be used as a stand-­alone treatment or in conjunction with fillers and botulinum toxin.

Genuine Dermaroller

Last Updated on Wednesday, 16 November 2016 11:42

About Dermaroller

Dermaroller, also known as Microneedling therapy is a skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itslef naturally and safely.

This technique is also used to target signs of ageing on the face neck and décolleté and it used in the treatment of scars and stretch marks

Working on the principle that our blood contains all the constituents required for healing and rejuvenating.

The skin rejuvenation procedure depends on the action produced by thousands of micro needles applied to the skin using a device called a Genuine Dermaroller. The upper layer of the skin is penetrated “traumatised” and causing the skin to naturally regenerate and repair. Blood rushes to the surface new skin cells and collagen are laid down. The whole process takes up to six weeks and will continue in the following months providing a natural and long lasting result. Genuine derma roller procedure should be repeated approximately six weeks apart to obtain the best result. Normally three to four treatments is sufficient. However, on particular skin complaint, it may be necessary for extra treatments.

For the treatment of localised scarring, the practitioner may use the Dermastamp which may be of more benefit.

Immediately after treatment because of the trauma caused to the surface of the skin and the blood under the surface of the skin, it will look as though you have mild sunburn. Your skin will also feel warmer and tighter than usual. This will subside very rapidly. The clinician will advise you on the use of post procedure cream and UV protection methods.

This method is not suitable for those who have active skin infections, such as active acne or flared eczema.

Dermal Fillers

Last Updated on Wednesday, 16 November 2016 11:41

About Dermal Fillers/Hyaluronic Acid

Dermal fillers, known by doctors and aestheticians as Hyaluronic Acid, is a gel-like water-holding molecule that is naturally found in the body, however more is injected into certain areas of the body to fill areas, most commonly to get those bigger lips, or cheeks.

Dermal fillers can be put into two categories, wrinkle fillers or volumisers. 

  • Wrinkle Fillers
  • Volumisers

These are injectable fillers broadly based on hyaluronic acid. Brand names include Juvederm, Teosyal and Restylane. Those are used to fill in wrinkles, unlike Botox that real the muscles beneath the skin causing puckering.

Botox and fillers can be used in combination for resistant lines/wrinkles.

They provide a youthful appearance that can last from 6-18 months depending on the type of filler and where it is used.

The hyaluronic acid gel comes in a range of consitencies which is injected below the dermis (skin) using an ultra fine needle. This gel physically fills in the wrinkles whilst the hyaluronic acid is hydrophilic attracting moisture with lasting results.

Areas generally targeted are:

  • fine lines
  • nasolabial lines
  • marionnette lines
  • mandibular lines

Your clinician will advise you on the most suitable filler so it is very important to find a highly skilled and trained physician that you feel comfortable with. 

The Treatment

Treatment Procedure

The clinician will often suggest topical and anaesthetic or injected anaesthetic to make the procedure as comfortable and pain free as possible. Typically a treatment session including consultation will last no more than 30 minutes. The effects will be visible immediately. 

Side Effects

You may experience temporary:

  • Mild swelling
  • Mild pain
  • Itching
  • Bruising or discolouration

You may feel the filler under the skin especially in the lip area for a short time after treatment. However, over time the filler will integrate and cannot be felt.

Anti Wrinkle Treatment

Last Updated on Wednesday, 16 November 2016 11:40

About Botulinum Toxin (Btx)

Botox is a brand name for botulinum toxin. Its used in the medical aesthetic industry to relax small muscles around the face, neck hands feet and underarms to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or help with hyperhydrosis (sweaty underarms, hands and feet) it’s also used in the muscles spanning the head to help with tension headaches. It’s injected using a series of very fine injections into the required muscles.

Treatment Areas/Types

Face

The main muscles that most clinicians will target are the upper face muscles. These are:

  • Glabellar (between brows) causing frown lines
  • Frontallis (forehead muscles) causing corrugated appearance on forehead
  • Orbicularis oculi around the eye causing crows feet

As we age our skin loses it’s elasticity and has a wrinkled appearance especially so on tightening of these muscles every time we use them during our day to day facial expressions. Btx is used to relax these muscles allowing the skin to smooth over the muscle and so reducing the appearance of wrinkled skin. Btx is a non permanent method of reducing the signs of ageing. Typically lasting between 3-6 months maybe more or less.

Advanced Btx

This is provided by advanced trained clinicians who are able to manipulate the muscles in the face.

Advanced clinicians, such as Ros, will target other areas of the face such as nose, lips cheeks, chin and neck to reduce wrinkles and provide the appeared of lift.

Btx used in conjunction with fillers can contribute to a non permanent face lift.

Hyperhydrosis

Excessive sweating of the hands feet and and underarms can be controlled by paralysing the muscles supplying the sweat glands.

Warnings and Complications

As with any treatment involving compromising the skin and muscles there is a risk that the treatment falls short of patients and sometimes clinicians expectations. It’s rarely to do with technique but more often on an individual response basis. Some obvious complications are mild bleeding, bruising and rarely infection. Some patient centred conditions, such as an autoimmune disease, will contraindicate treatment for that patients. Additionally, pregnancy, breast feeding, active local infection, and previous hypersensitivity are all contraindicated.
