Your jaw hurts.  Your face is in constant pain.  This is not a toothache.  It is chronic, and much worse.

 

Chances are you are suffering from a condition known as Temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMJ.  About 20% to 30% of all adults are affected to some degree with this debilitating affliction, more common in women than men.  TMJ is a complex symptom, thought to be caused by multiple factors.  Dentists believe any of the following could be cases of TJM (more properly labeled TMD, for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder):

 

·         Grinding or clenching teeth

·         Dislocation of the soft cushion or disc between the ball and socket

·         Presence of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis

·         Stress

 

If you think you may be suffering from this disorder, schedule a consultation with the Houston dental experts familiar with this disease and its treatment.  Call 713-497-1499 or visit antoinedental.com for more information.
