What To Do About Jaw Pain
by: Dental Assistant Team


 

What can you do when you experience jaw pain?

STOP CHEWING GUM
If you have jaw pain, chewing gum exerts additional pressure on your jaw joint, which can exacerbate existing problems.

SEPARATE YOUR TEETH
As we tense up, most of us have a tendency to clench our teeth together.  Even while at the gym or exercising - the effort of a strenuous work out often causes us to apply great force on both upper and lower jaw, causing stress to the jaw and, ultimately, pain.

SEEK TREATMENT
Long-lasting jaw discomfort can be caused by temporomandibular joint disorder, also called TMJ disorder.  Some patients have a clicking and/or popping in the joint, or have trouble opening their mouth wide  due to the muscle being stiff and tender.  This results in severe headaches, neck aches and facial muscle tenderness. The cause of all this can be an injury, bite discrepancies causing teeth grinding, or medical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or osteoporosis.

Recommended treatment is usually a well-constructed bite guard, which we custom make to your exact physiology.  This is not the one-size-fits-all type sold over-the-counter, as they tend to actually PROMOTE grinding and therefore add stress to the joint, exactly what we do not want to do.
