Within your jaw lies a set of ball and socket joints known as temporomandibular joints, or TMJs for short. The TMJs facilitate the movement of your jaw for speak, chewing and eating. If you are suffering from jaw pain, it is most likely the result of damage to your TMJs.
Is your jaw pain coming from a damaged TMJ? For more information about treating a TMJ disorder, consider the following:
– Additional problems can occur with a TMJ disorder if you bite your nails, chew gum, or eat extremely chewy foods.
– Although meditation therapies may not seem like the most helpful treatments for jaw pain, it might just surprise you. Relaxation is key to discharging jaw pressure, so try various stress-relievers such as soft music, yoga, and biofeedback.
– To ensure your smile is properly protected, have heat and ice packs ready for any pain or inflammation that may occur with TMJ disorders.
– Although not all TMJ disorders are associated with other ailments, many may find their traces to underlying causes. In some cases, TMJ disorders can be instigated by ailments such as bruxism, also known as teeth grinding.
