Frequent headaches or facial pain may be indications that you’re suffering from a TMJ disorder. These disorders can be attributed to a variety of causes, including arthritis, injury, jaw misalignment and teeth grinding. As symptoms of this condition vary, it’s important have your 96732 TMJ dentist diagnose your discomfort and perform a clinical examination to rule out other causes of your condition.
The temporomandibular joints (TMJ), are the joints and muscles which act as the hinges for your jaws on either side of your face. Issues with the TMJ can lead to a variety of difficulties, from interfering with the most basic functional uses of your mouth, to causing excess strain on surrounding musculature producing headaches, neck pain and other symptoms. Because the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most frequently used joints in the body, when it gets inflamed it can be very painful and impact many aspects of your normal daily routine.
