JAW-JOINT PAIN

Jaw-Joint Pain

WHEN CHEWING

Jaw-joint pain when chewing is a symptom of temporomandibular disorder (TMD), which is more commonly called TMJ syndrome. Most common in women between the ages of 25 and 40, TMD can be caused by a bad bite, misaligned teeth, missing teeth, arthritis or emotional stress.

AFTER SLEEPING

Jaw-joint pain in the morning is a sign that you’re grinding and clenching your teeth during the night. This is one of the causes of temporomandibular disorder (TMD), which is more commonly called TMJ syndrome. Most common in women between the ages of 25 and 40, this grinding can be caused by a bad bite, misaligned teeth, missing teeth, arthritis or emotional stress.

CONSTANT TMJ PAIN

TREATMENT

Have a complete diagnosis of the problem by your dentist or by a dentist who focuses on this disorder (there is no official specialty in dentistry for TMJ problems). A wide range of treatments is available. For a more comprehensive explanation see Take this Book to the Dentist with You by Charles B. Inlander.
