Arthritis (TMJ)

Temporomandibular joint arthritis is pain originating from the joint itself, which also presents clinical signs of inflammation or infection: edema (swelling), erythema (redness) and/or increase in temperature. Other symptoms may appear, such as occlusal changes (changes in the bite), but with no involvement of systemic inflammatory diseases. This pathology is also known as synovitis or capsulitis.


If you have any of these symptoms and suspect you may suffer from temporomandibular joint arthritis, schedule an appointment with one of our Occlusion specialized dentists or contact us.
