|Does your jaw ever click, pop or grind while you’re eating, talking or yawning? While this may not feel like a serious condition, it’s usually caused by problems with the temporomandibular joint. If left untreated, this can develop into a painful and occasionally debilitating disorder known as temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD.“According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, part of the National Institutes of Health, “Approximately 35 million people in the United States suffer from TMJ problems.”
TMD can cause headaches, dizziness, facial pain, and tooth sensitivity. It can cause difficulty in chewing and opening your jaw and can lead to other problems like jaw clenching. As your dental office, we want to help you maintain good oral health. If you’re experiencing jaw clicks, please call (770-475-9509) our office for an appointment today.
