Sometimes people mistake TMD pain for an ear problem, such as an ear infection, when the ear is not the problem at all. When the joints move, they may produce sounds, such as clicking, grating, and/or popping. Others may also be able to hear the clicking and popping sounds. This means the disc may be in an abnormal position. Muscle spasms associated with TMD syndrome may cause difficulty swallowing. TMD syndrome can also cause headache and dizziness, potentially leading to nausea Some individuals with TMD syndrome may have a history of poor dentition or emotional distress READ MORE
Some impacted wisdom teeth don't require removal, but symptomatic cases usually need surgical extraction by an oral surgeon in an outpatient setting. Local or general anesthesia may be used, depending on the severity of the condition. First, an incision in the gums is made and any bone blocking the impacted tooth is removed before the tooth itself. Afterward, the incision is stitched shut and the empty tooth socket is packed with gauze. If the tooth is too large to extract in one piece, or if it's coming in at an angle, the surgeon cuts the tooth into smaller pieces with a drill. READ MORE
