TMJ, also known as Temporomandibular Disorder, refers to several conditions that affect temporomandibular joints, jaw muscles, and facial nerves. Symptoms of this disorder include pain around the ear, headaches, tender jaw muscles, pain when chewing, clicking or popping noises when opening the mouth, and sensitive teeth.
If you notice any combination of these symptoms bothering you it is a good idea to stop in for a visit. An evaluation will help us determine a treatment plan that is best for you. Schedule your appointment with us today!
Can TMJ Go Away On Its Own?
Just as there are different degrees of other disorders, there are also varying stages of TMJ. We proudly house top professionals here at Platinum Dental Care in Ogden, and we always recommend coming into our office for treatment.
However, if you think you have TMJ you can try some simple self-care techniques such as exercise, or breathing exercises to reduce jaw clenching caused by stress. If your jaw pain is caused by stress the pain will usually go away. If pain and symptoms persist we recommend you come in for a visit. We’ll evaluate what is going on and suggest a treatment plan to get you feeling better.
