How do I know if I have a Jaw Disorder?

Time:2011-12-14Click:Source:hygeia dental


Do you have an unpleasant sensation of grinding your teeth while you sleep? Do you also find that when you are wide awake, opening and closing your mouth produces a 'clicking' The strong possibility is that you might have a jaw disorder or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder; in other terms, TMD. The temporomandibular joint connects the lower jaw bone to the skull, and facilitates the opening and closing motion of the upper and lower jaws. This in turn, is how we are able to chew and speak. You will most commonly find jaw disorders manifesting in this temporomandibular joint, or the TMJ.

Another way to detect if you have a jaw disorder is to watch out for recurring inexplicable headaches and pain in your neck area. On occasion it will also cause sensitive teeth.

The truth is, TMD is a fairly serious medical issue. You will be offered a selection of treatment procedures that you can choose from in a well informed manner. The team at Hygeia Dental will explain the process and you will be completely at ease when you are quite aware of or the procedure and its effects.

Whatever the recommended solution, wearing an NTI appliance when you sleep, using a muscle relaxant, or utilizing a biofeedback, the dentist will suggest what is best for your personal condition.
