Treatment For Stress-Induced Jaw Pain In Farmington

Treatment For Stress Induced Jaw Pain In Farmington

Everyday troubles cause some Farmington people to respond by clenching their jaw or grinding their teeth. For example, daily commuting in Farmington 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 interstates.

Some Farmington residents 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. In Farmington, 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 critical joints can lead to extreme 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 in Farmington because facial pain can result from a variety of issues, 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 Sundance Dental & Orthodontics we have been diagnosing and treating TMD since 2004, working with other specialists when required. If you are experiencing clicking, popping, or discomfort in your jaw, call Sundance Dental & Orthodontics today for a diagnosis and treatment plan.
