Treatment For Stress-Induced Jaw Pain In Wetaskiwin

Treatment For Stress Induced Jaw Pain In Wetaskiwin

Everyday problems cause some Wetaskiwin people to respond by clenching their jaw or grinding their teeth. For example, daily commuting can take a physical toll. All the traffic, noise, and perpetual road construction causes some people to grind their teeth as they navigate the sea of cars on packed highways.

Some people who hate waiting in long lines channel their frustration to their jaw as they try, by the sheer force of will, to cause the line to move faster.

Teeth grinding and jaw clenching can cause a painful condition called TMD or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder. TMD is often mistakenly called ‘TMJ’: the acronym for Temporomandibular Joint.

Your jaw is able to open and close thanks to many jaw muscles and the intricate temporomandibular joints. These joints allow for fluid mobility as you chew, speak, and yawn.

Damage to these essential joints can lead to acute pain in the jaw, head, face and neck. Pain may be experienced on one or both sides of the jaw.

TMD is an often misdiagnosed condition because facial pain can result from a variety of problems, not just damage to the temporomandibular joints. Sinus infections, tooth decay, and facial inuries can cause jaw pain. A correct diagnosis is the first step in treating TMD.

At Timothy G. Mahoney, DDS, we have been diagnosing and treating TMD since 1983, working with other specialists when necessary. If you are experiencing clicking, popping, or discomfort in your jaw, call Timothy G. Mahoney, DDS, today for a diagnosis and treatment plan.
