If you suffer from persistent muscle aches in the neck or back, headaches, migraines, or an aching lower jaw, Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, often referred to as TMJ, may be to blame. TMJ can be caused by a variety of conditions, including involuntary clenching or grinding of the teeth while sleeping, a previous injury to the jaw or damage to the joint cartilage from arthritis. The result is a stiff, aching, jawline that triggers pain throughout much of the body.
While many cases of TMJ are relatively minor and can heal themselves, more serious cases may require dental intervention. Without proper treatment, TMJ can sometimes result in permanent damage to tooth enamel and the supportive structures of your mouth, so it is always best to schedule an evaluation if symptoms of this painful condition appear.
