TMJ jaw pain affects many people. Some don’t even realize that they have TMJ disorder. Beyond being a pain in the mouth, it can cause pain and discomfort elsewhere, too.
If you’ve got back pain, neck pain, facial pain, ear aches, and continuous headaches, it may be advantageous to seek help from your dentist. Many of our patients at Excellence in Dentistry have found relief from TMJ pain in the neck, back, and elsewhere. We’ve had many patients who sought TMJ assistance from us remark that symptoms they were plagued with for years (that they didn’t realize were related to their jaw) have now disappeared.
You’ll want to know if you have TMJ disorder and you’ll want to explore what TMJ treatment options are available to help alleviate and reduce symptoms.
A dentist can help you determine whether or not your jaw is out of alignment. If it is, it can cause a variety of side-effects, such as jaw clicking or popping, neck pain, back pain, headaches, tinnitus, tooth pain, jaw pain, and even loose teeth. There are things that can be done to help you overcome these symptoms and eliminate pain.
