    Advice after a car accident in Sutton


    If you, your spouse, family member or friend have suffered a temporomandibular disorder of the jaw from a road traffic accident that was caused by someone else’s actions or inactions, you may require advice after a car accident in Sutton to enable you make a personal injury compensation claim.

    The temporomandibular joint is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull, which are in the front of each ear. It lets you move your jaw up and down and side to side, so that you may be able to talk, chew and yawn. A problem with your jaw and the muscles in your face that control it are known as temporomandibular disorders (TMD).

    Causes

    Although the causes aren’t known for sure, dentists believe that symptoms arise from problems with the muscles of your jaw or with the parts of the joint itself.

    An injury to your jaw, the joint, or the muscles of your head and neck like a heavy blow or whiplash from a road traffic accident can lead to you suffering TMD.

    Symptoms

    Temporomandibular disorder often causes severe pain and discomfort. It can be temporary or last for many years. It may affect one or both sides of your face. The gender that is most affected is woman, and it’s very common among people between the ages of 20-40.
