Treatment For Stress-Induced Jaw Pain

Treatment For Stress Induced Jaw Pain In Elgin

Everyday stress can cause some people to clench their jaw or grind their teeth. That can lead to other, serious problems. If this sounds at all like you, ask us about it at David Rice DDS in Elgin.

Teeth grinding and jaw clenching can cause or complicate 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 muscles and the intricate temporomandibular joints. These joints enable strength and fluid motion as you chew, speak, and yawn.

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

TMD is often misdiagnosed, because facial pain can result from a variety of other troubles. Sinus infections, tooth decay, and facial inuries can cause jaw pain. A correct diagnosis is the first step in treating TMD.

David Rice DDS in Elgin, we can diagnose and treat TMD pain. Other services include dental implants. Call for an appointment today!
