Experiencing Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Pain?
If you have any of the following symptoms:
- Stiffness in the jaw muscles and cannot open your mouth wide for long periods of time
- Normally have muscles soreness in the evening and require pain relief
- Cannot eat certain hard foods
- Highly stressed
- Have poor posture
- Have worn teeth or cracked teeth
You may well be having problems with your Tempromandibular Joints (TMJ).
Most TMJ pain can be treated with immediate hot presses, pain relief, simple exercises, to splints and muscles relaxants.
The usual treatments not helping? Have you thought that your TMJ pain could be coming from your teeth? One tooth in the wrong position can throw your jaw out of whack and aggravate the jaw joint causing pain. Fixing the tooth (or teeth) interferences can instantly help relieve stress on the jaw. Orthodontics also aligns teeth to their ideal position and can alleviate undue stress on the TMJ.
