Temporomandibular Joint Disorders
Alternate Names : Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome, TMJ, Costen's Syndrome
How is the condition diagnosed?
The results of a medical history and physical exam often cause a healthcare
provider to suspect a temporomandibular disorder. Blood tests and X-rays are
often used to make sure more serious diseases are not causing the symptoms. No
single test can confirm the diagnosis. Dental X-rays can sometimes help
make the diagnosis.
