Effective TMJ Pain Relief

Smiling Woman with Dentist - TMJ Pain

You don't have to live in constant discomfort. Lafazanos Dental of Crystal Lake, Illinois, offers solutions for dealing with TMJ pain. TMJ—temporomandibular joint disorder—is caused when chewing muscles and the temporomandibular joint fail to work together. The consistent cramping of these muscles leads to a cycle of tissue damage and pain. Common causes include:

Accidents—Injuries Involving the Jaw, Head, or Neck Can Cause TMJ
Stress—Those with High Stress Levels & Compulsive Personalities Have Increased Risks of
   Developing TMJ Pain
Oral Habits—Clenching or Grinding the Teeth Exhaust the Muscles, Leading to Spasm Which
   Eventually Results in Pain
Awkward Biting—When Teeth Improperly Align, They May Cause Chewing Muscle Stress That
   Results in Pain & Spasm Cycles
Hyper-Mobility—This Occurs When the Ligaments That Hold the Jaw in Place Wobble, Causing
   the Jaw to Slide out of Its Socket

Other Causes Include:

• Hormones 

• Autoimmune Diseases • Smoke Cessation • Smoking & the Effects in the Mouth • Medications & the Effects in the Mouth
