FIND RELIEF FROM TMJ PAIN
Do you suffer from jaw pain, headaches, painful chewing, or clicking and popping in your jaw? These could all be signs and symptoms of temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMD. The temporomandibular joint is essentially where your jaw meets your skull It is one of the most complex joints in the body and can be affected by neck and head position, eating or chewing certain foods, habitual postures or positions, and direct trauma. It is also
often associated with stress and poor sleep habits. Grinding the teeth or clenching the jaw during sleep are also common causes of TMD and your dentist might be the first person to make you aware that you have this syndrome based on the wear pattern on your teeth. Other symptoms of TMD may include neck pain, ear ache or pressure, aching or tingling around the ear, face, or jaw, or even pain in the teeth.
