TMJ Vs. Ernest Syndrome

Orofacial pain is a term commonly used to describe pain involving the hard and soft structures of the face, head, oral cavity and neck. Ernest Syndrome, one of several orofacial disorders, is often mistaken for temporomandibular disorder (TMD), which is itself a type of orofacial dysfunction that comprises a number of symptoms involving the TM joints, the muscles of mastication and related structures and is often accompanied by TM joint noises, restrictions in opening, lateral jaw deflection to the affected side and impaired functional ability.
