Symptoms of TMJ Disorder
TMJ disorder is not something many Americans know about until they get diagnosed, but jaw pain is common. Symptoms to be aware of include, but are not limited to:
- Headaches or migraines
- Earaches or a seemingly permanent, chronic ringing (called tinnitus)
- Clicking or popping when using the jaw
- Frequent discomfort or pain around the jaw, temples, or side of your face
- Unexplained neck or shoulder pain
If you’re experiencing these symptoms, we encourage you to contact us.
How Can We Help Treat Your Pain?
TMJ disorder is often related to common treatable dental problems. It can be associated with malocclusion, stress or anxiety, a traumatic injury, or other things that can be looked at and treated by a dentist. A specific culprit can be bruxism, or teeth grinding.
One standard treatment method for TMJ is through a mouth or nightguard, also known as occlusal splints. These are custom-made to fit your teeth best and help protect against grinding, which can wear down your teeth and affect your bite and jaw positioning. With an occlusal splint, the pain and consequences associated with bruxism disappear, leading to a much more comfortable and pain-free quality of life.
Other Solutions We Explore
- Using warm and cold compresses
- Dietary restriction to softer foods
- Practicing stress-relief techniques, such as yoga and meditation
- Ending habits that can worsen the problem, such as chewing gum or ice
Sometimes, TMJ disorder may require more specialized care. In these cases, Dr. Jessica Wyatt or Dr. Ajmo can refer you to a trusted and experienced doctor who can help.
