TMJ Disorder And Teeth Grinding Explained

TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is just a scientific term for your jaw joint. Because of the complexity of the joint and how frequently we use it, a lot of issues can occur and cause discomfort.

For a proper TMJ disorder (TMD) diagnosis, you should visit our Lewisville, TX office. That said, there are some common symptoms of TMD. If you are experiencing any of these issues, you may be suffering from TMD:

  • Pain, tenderness, or swelling in your jaw
  • A jaw that “locks up” or gets stuck while opening your mouth widely
  • Popping sounds while opening and closing your mouth
  • Difficulty opening your mouth wide
  • Frequent migraines and headaches

Teeth grinding can also inflame your TMJ because it prevents the joint from healing and resting. Just because you grind your teeth doesn’t mean you have TMD, however. Stress, an abnormal bite, and sleep apnea can all lead to teeth grinding.

Relieve Your Jaw Pain With A Custom Night Guard

Whether you suffer from TMD, teeth grinding, or both, we can help by providing a custom night guard! Just wear the night guard while you sleep and it will prevent teeth grinding, clenching, and other issues. This will also allow your TMJ to rest and heal as it should.

Dr. Mathew cares about long-term dental health and demonstrates that concern through membership in different professional organizations like American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Texas Dental Association and Dallas County Dental Society.
