Signs We Need to Look for TMJ Problems


Posted on 9/10/2018 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
Signs We Need to Look for TMJ ProblemsProblems with the temporomandibular joint ("TMJ" for short) are fairly common among the populace today. Fortunately, they are also usually quite easy to address.

Here are some things you should look out for, as they may be an indication that you have an issue with your TMJ.

Cracking or Popping

One of the most common symptoms of TMJ problems is a popping sensation in your jaw when you open your mouth too wide. If this is something that you experience, let us know about it. We can perform a very quick inspection of your TMJ to determine if you may need some treatment.

Headaches

If your TMJ is not operating properly, one of the many issues that it can cause is unexplained headaches. Of course, you can get a headache for any number of reasons, so a headache in and of itself doesn't mean too much. However, if you are experiencing frequent unexplained headaches, please come see us. Fixing the issue could be as simple as crafting a splint for you to wear when you sleep, and you'll find that you feel much better.

Unexplained Excessive or Uneven Tooth Wear

Of course, if the hinge where your jaw moves is misaligned, it is very frequent to develop teeth that are excessively or unevenly worn. You may not even know that you have TMJ issues, but we will often be able to tell simply by examining your teeth.

Treatment for TMJ Problems

A full discussion of what you can do to treat your TMJ is beyond the scope of this article. Suffice to say that you have many options available, and treating TMJ is often fast, painless, and easy. After treatment, you will find that you feel much better—and, if you have been suffering from headaches, they'll go away.

So if you have any of the above symptoms, or any other reason to suspect a TMJ issue, please let us know. We'll have you fixed up in no time.
