Petition To create awareness and delvelop treatment on Temporomandibular Joint disorders
The symptoms of TMJD include facial pain, reduced mouth opening and headaches which can be very debilitating.
- patients need to know which treatments they can access
- to create more TMJD centers on the NHS in all regions of the UK, not just London
- more research into TMJD.
TMJD affects approx. 25% of the population. There are very few NHS clinics which provide TMJD treatment in the UK compared to the USA even though there are NICE Guidelines set out for TMJD, most patients who do not know that treatment is available.
