TMD is often called "the great imposter" because TMD signs and TMJ symptoms can mimic dozens of other disorders. Women of child-bearing age are most often affected, but men and children can suffer from TMJ-related pain too.
TMD can have a single cause or many causes. In addition, TMD can often coexist with other potentially related disorders. That's why symptoms vary among patients, making this medical condition difficult for even a skilled physician to diagnose. However, a dentist with the appropriate training and expertise in TMJ-related pain and dysfunction can help patients (and their physicians) rule in or rule out a TMD problem . Quickly and easily.
