The Link Between TMJ and Facial Pain

You have heard about braces in Annapolis and other teeth straightening options, but what do you know about TMJ? If you experience any pain or discomfort in your face, your TMJ might be the culprit. Talk to your dentist about your facial pain and take a look at this video for a quick overview of the link between TMJ and facial pain.

Your TMJ is your temporomandibular joint, which is the joint that connects the skull and jawbone. Issues with the TMJ, often referred to as TMD or TMJ disorders, affect a significant portion of Americans. You might experience tenderness in the jaw, headaches, or popping noises when you open your mouth. Your dentist can help alleviate these symptoms by offering you a mouth protector, exercise programs, or medications. If you experience any symptoms related to TMJ disorders, be sure to talk to your dentist about your treatment options.
