Find Relief For Headaches And Sore Jaws
Do you suffer from chronic headaches, discomfort in your jaw, sinus pressure, or ringing ears? Has it become more difficult to for you to brush or floss, because opening your mouth causes your jaw to feel tender or sore? Do you find that your jaw joint pops, clicks, or grates often?
If your answer is yes to some of these questions, then there is a chance you have developed TMD. TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) can occur for a number of reasons.
Causes of Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction
Some of the causes of TMD include:
Injury of the TMJ
If you have ever injured the cartilage around your TMJ, or your TMJ itself, it can result in TMD occurring.
If your jaw is misaligned, or you have a bad bite (a bite that does not bite evenly) it can result in TMD and the need for treatment.
If you grind your teeth while you are awake or when you sleep, it can result in TMD occurring (and usually other issues as well, including headaches). Tooth grinding can cause other issues beyond TMD as well.
