TMJ often leads to complaints such as headaches and migraines as well as problems in opening and closing the mouth, chewing and more. TMJ is usually caused by stress on the jaw joints and muscles that comes from a bad bite and/or clenching the teeth.
ﾕﾠﾠ ﾠPeople who suffer from TMJ often complain of symptoms such as:
ﾕﾠﾠ ﾠClicking or grinding-type sound when yawning/chewing
ﾕﾠﾠ ﾠJaw pain
ﾕﾠﾠ ﾠPersistent headaches that can't otherwise be explained
ﾕﾠﾠ ﾠDull aches and pains in the face
Visiting your doctor as well as the dentist is recommended so that you can rule out other conditions that may be causing the symptoms, though more often than not, TMJ is the problem. TMJ can be treated with TMJ Therapy which is also referred to as ﾓBite Therapyﾔ. This includes advice on how to relieve the symptoms and also the use of a special mouthguard that is made especially for TMJ Therapy. It's a dental appliance that helps prevent you from clenching your teeth while you sleep which is when you're most likely to do it. This offers you relief from the painful symptoms like nothing else can.
If you think that TMJ may be responsible for the pain and symptoms that you've been feeling then please give us a call. TMJ Therapy may just offer you the relief that you've been looking for.
