TMJ problems can be one of the most painful jaw-related issues to experience. Suffering from TMJ pain can not only cause pain in your jaw, but can also cause ear aches, neck aches, difficulty with chewing, facial pain, numbness and headaches. Interestingly, there is often a link between increased headaches and a dysfunctional bite. A dysfunctional bite can cause you to compensate with destructive clenching habits. This will not only put you at a higher likelihood to suffer from chronic headaches, but it can also seriously damage the integrity of your teeth, with continued damage to the jaw joints!

TMJ Treatment FAQs
What are TMJ disorders?
A TMJ disorder may cause a variety of symptoms, including pain and discomfort in the jaw and face, difficulty moving the jaw, and a clicking or popping sound when moving the jaw. Jaw injury, grinding or clenching of the teeth, and stress may all contribute to TMJ disorders. Pain reduction and inflammation reduction, as well as physical therapy to enhance jaw movement, are among the treatment options for TMJ disorders. Surgery may be performed to repair the jaw joint if needed.
