Temporomandibular Joint Disorder Can Have Several Causes

Jaw pain in South Pasadena is a symptom of other disorders but its likely TMJ

Understanding the Temporomandibular joint and its function will help you understand the connection between the symptoms and your jaw. This joint connects your jaw to your skull, which is the joint you use every day when speaking, eating, drinking and more. It controls the movement of your jaw, allowing it to move easily and freely, that is unless you have TMJ disorder. With the disorder your jaw will likely pop, lock and move with discomfort. With that being said, what could be the cause of having this disorder? First, you have a possibility of having alignment problems with your teeth, like an over bite, under bite or cross bite. When alignment is the issue, we can help provide relief by fixing the alignment in your teeth with Invisalign or metal braces. Sometimes clenching or grinding your teeth can also contribute to the disorder. In this case we provide mouth guards and nighttime appliances to help relax your jaw muscles. As a last resort for treating TMJ in South Pasadena surgery is also an option if other treatments don’t help your pain. Taking over the counter pain medications, like ibuprofen or Tylenol can help with the pain as well as the application of a heating pad to the area. When diagnosed with TMJ, your doctor will help you find a solution for your pain. Let us help you get out of jaw pain in South Pasadena. Call us today at (626) 441-6234 for TMJ treatment.
