Dental TMJ Injury

Legal Assistance for Jaw Injury Victims

The term TMJ stands for the two bones that form the temporomandibular joint in a person's jaw. This joint and its surrounding tissue can become inflamed because of external factors such as trauma or bruxism. Some types of TMJ injuries may heal over a period of time, but more serious injuries can have life-threatening complications. Bleeding, infection, breathing of blood into the lungs, and airway blockage are all potential consequences of an advanced TMJ injury. If you have been injured in a car accident with whiplash, a recreational accident, an industrial accident or a dental negligence case, you may be suffering from TMJ. It is vital that you contact a Ft. Lauderdale personal injury lawyer immediately for help in securing the compensation you need to pay for the best medical care.

TMJ Injury Symptoms & Treatment

The signs and symptoms of a TJM injury will vary with the cause of the injury and they may be very complex. A TMJ injury will likely involve several of the components of the joint, such as the nerves, tendons, bones, connective tissue, teeth, muscles and ligaments. The following symptoms have all been associated with TMJ injuries:

  • Chewing or biting down with discomfort
  • Continuous dull or aching pain in the face
  • Earaches
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Jaw pain or tenderness
  • Lessened ability to open or close the mouth

If you or someone you know is experience any of these symptoms after being involved in a traumatizing accident or incident, it is important to consult a skilled medical doctor for treatment. Physical therapy, orthodontics or surgery are all prescribed treatments for TMJ injuries, but these costly medical solutions may leave you and your family overwhelmed with medical bills. With the help of a professional Ft. Lauderdale personal injury attorney, you can file a claim for compensation against the parties responsible for causing your TMJ injury.
