Jaw pain is caused by a variety of factors, including clenching and grinding, tooth infection, or trauma. It could also be a sign of cavities, abscess, gum disease, or even problems with the muscles or nerves of the jaws and face. Jaw pain is often diagnosed as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ, TMD, or TMJD).
At Skypointe Dental, we use an evidence-based approach to non-surgical jaw pain treatment to improve the harmony and function of your jaw. A TMJ diagnosis by Dr. Darwish, will determine the proper course of treatment.
Some of the most common procedures involve medication, pain relievers, bite guards, physical therapy, or Botox injections.
TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders are connected problems related to your complex jaw joint with how the jaw and muscles move. This disorder may develop from clenching or grinding your teeth, tightening your jaw muscles and stressing your TM joint, or from a damaged jaw joint due to injury or disease. Whatever the cause, it can show up as a misaligned bite, pain, clicking or grating noises when you open your mouth, or even trouble opening your mouth wide.
The pain of TMJ dysfunction may be sharp and searing, or it may be dull and constant. Gladly, these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than in the past.
Early detection and treatment are essential as some types of TMJ problems can lead to more severe conditions.
Symptoms may include any of the following:
