Relieve Jaw Pain
The temporomandibular joint, or jaw joint, allows you to open and close your mouth, speak, swallow and chew food.
Dysfunction of the joint may result in symptoms like clicking and popping sounds, headaches, neck, and facial pain, locking of the jaw, and ringing in the ears.
The TM joints are part of a large group of muscles, ligaments, and bones that work together as a system. Because of this complex system, a problem in one area can cause symptoms elsewhere. Many things can trigger TMJ disorder, such as trauma to the face, whiplash, bad posture, or an uneven bite (malocclusion) where the teeth are not being able to properly support the jaw. This can occur from missing teeth, misaligned teeth, or back teeth that are too short.
When this condition is prolonged, the body begins to compensate by involving muscles in other areas such as the neck, throat, upper and lower back, arms, etc.
If you or someone you know has chronic headaches, neck, and shoulder stiffness, ringing in the ears, or even dizziness, Dr. Edwards & Cavendish, can help relieve symptoms and restore optimum function. Dental treatment involving the use of splints, bite plates, or functional appliances can be used to reposition the lower jaw. Both doctors are experienced and qualified to treat TMJ disorders.
