“No pain, no gain” may be a good motto for a sports team or a military unit. However, it’s the wrong way to think about jaw pain and headaches.
Those pains may be the result of a TMJ disorder or TMD.
TMJ is the temporomandibular joint. You have two (one on each side of your face), and they allow you to open and close your jaw and move it from side-to-side.
When you have a TMD, jaw pain, headaches, and other problems can interfere with your daily life. A TMJ disorder can make it hard to eat or to concentrate on what you want to get done.
Fortunately, if you live in or near Tulsa, OK, our dentist office can help with our TMJ treatment. Listen as Dr. Justin Emami discusses the effects of TMJ problems and how we can help at Galleria of Smiles.
