[ARTICLE] What Is TMJ?
Filed Under: Dentistry | Published: Jun 5, 2017 | Author: From Best Oral Hygiene

The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) connects the jaw and skull, allowing for flexibility of the jaw so that you are able to speak and chew. A disorientation in this joint causes TMJ dysfunction and can cause complaints.

In case of TMJ disorder, over-the-counter medication only serves to mask the pain on a superficial level and fails to address the root cause.

If you are suffering from chronic headaches and stiffness of the jaw, you could be suffering from TMJ.

These 7 signs will tell you if your headache is actually caused by Temporomandibular Joint Disorder.

  • You snore every night
  • Your head remains in front of your shoulders
  • Your headache originates in the temples and radiates down to your neck
  • Your upper and lower teeth do not align when you bite
  • Your jaw clicks often
  • Your tongue is further back and your jaw opening is restricted
  • Your headache gets severe when you chew

If you are suffering from TMJ disorder and experiencing any of the above symptoms, it is advisable to consult a dental expert and discuss your treatment options.

A trained and certified dentist will provide an accurate diagnosis and a suitable solution resolve your TMJ-related headache.  More information can be found on Best Oral Hygiene.
