Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD) refers to a variety of conditions that affect the temporomandibular joints (the jaw joints), the muscles of the jaw, and the facial nerves. TMD is characterized by pain or tenderness in the face and jaw areas, as well as clicking and popping noises, soreness and fatigue. TMJ can even cause problems within the head, neck and shoulder muscles and can even cause tinnitus symptoms to manifest (ear ringing and other auditory anomalies).
While there are millions of people out there that have TMJ pain on a regular basis, most sufferers do not realize that the jaw is not always at the root of the problem. In fact, TMJ pain is most often experienced as a result of having pronounced bite force imbalances that affect the surrounding neuromusculature. Few people have perfect teeth and it is no surprise that TMJ pain from bite force problems is so common.
If you have TMD or experience TMJ pain, TMJ diagnosis from a neuromuscular dentist such as Dr. Robison is advised. If the root causes for TMJ pain can be precisely identified then non-invasive TMJ treatment protocols should reduce or completely eliminate the pain – long-term.
If You Have Face Pain, Is It Related to TMD?
Facial pain most certainly can be related to TMD but it doesn’t have to be. Face pain has been linked to TMD and numerous other conditions such as Trigeminal Neuralgia, bite imbalance, abscessed teeth, problems with the sinuses, and facial trauma. Face pain can be difficult to diagnose for many healthcare providers. If you have sought help in the past from doctors and specialists but not achieved relief, consider a neuromuscular dentist for a more comprehensive face pain diagnosis.
The fact that so many people suffer with unexplainable face pain just underscores the need for a new, comprehensive approach to diagnosing face pain. Advanced technologies such as digital dental force analysis are now making it possible to uncover neuromuscular force problems precisely. The advent of new diagnostic technologies is producing more successful face pain treatment results because qualified providers with access to the technologies are able to more definitively locate areas that require neuromuscular rehabilitation.
If you are one of the millions who suffer with either TMJ pain or face pain, Cranberry Headache & Migraine Relief Center has new diagnostic options that could change everything for you.
