Not only does the patient have to live with a great deal of pain but he or she also finds it very difficult to speak, chew or swallow easily because the jaw will not open or shut easily. The biggest problem with this ailment is that it is often misdiagnosed and patients have to live with the pain for no fault of theirs. The only way to get relief from pains caused by problems in the temporomandibular joint is to have the ailment diagnosed correctly and to get the correct treatment.
