Diptendu Kumar Dash* and Aparna Sharma

ABSTRACT

TMJ syndrome is a common ENT problem seen now a day. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull. You have one joint on each side of your jaw. TMJ disorders, a type of temporomandibular disorder or TMD, can cause pain in the jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. Causes of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome include injury to the teeth or jaw, misalignment of the teeth or jaw, teeth grinding, poor posture, stress, arthritis, and gum chewing. Though it is mostly seen in elderly people but its prevalence is increasing in early or middle age also. In the present case study, a diagnosed case of TMJ syndrome has been included for its ayurvedic management.
