TMJ Problems and Headache
TMJ (short for temporomandibular joint) pain and dysfunction is caused by major or minor trauma to the jaw, malocclusion or incorrect bite, and
clenching or grinding of the teeth (parafunction or abnormal use of teeth). Parafunction leads to excessive tooth wear, difficulty chewing, eating, opening and closing the mouth, or talking,
incorrect jaw position, which can lead to an out-of-proportion facial appearance.
If you experience facial pain, headache, neck pain, jaw clicking or locking, tooth sensitivity and worn down teeth and disappearing bone around the teeth, you need to be evaluated for therapies aimed at helping you keep your teeth and have a pain-free life.
