Treatment For Stress-Induced Jaw Pain

Treatment For Stress Induced Jaw Pain In Fishers

Everyday dilemmas cause some people to respond by clenching their jaw or grinding their teeth.

Daily commuting, work problems, or an overpacked schedule are some persistent culprits.

Teeth grinding and jaw clenching can cause or complicate a painful condition called TMD or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder. TMD is often mistakenly called ‘TMJ,’ the acronym for temporomandibular joint.

Your jaw is able to open and close thanks to many muscles and the intricate temporomandibular joints. These joints permit flexibility as you chew, speak, and yawn.

Damage to these critical joints can lead to acute pain in the jaw, head, face, and neck. Pain may be experienced on one or both sides.

TMD is an often misdiagnosed condition because facial pain can result from a variety of issues, not just damage to the temporomandibular joints. Sinus infections, tooth decay, and facial injuries can cause jaw pain. A valid diagnosis is the first step in treating TMD.

At Pence Family Dentistry we have been diagnosing and treating TMD since 1985, working with other specialists when required. If you are suffering from clicking, popping, or discomfort in your jaw, call Pence Family Dentistry today for a diagnosis and treatment plan.
