Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) is a common problem that patients often face for a year without even knowing. It is only until they experience symptoms that this issue comes to the surface. Identifying the issue early on prevents the problem from becoming chronic pain years later.
When someone experiences TMJ, the jaw becomes fatigued and sometimes the pain alone can make you feel tired and overwhelmed. Since overcoming pain can be quite an uncomfortable experience, TMJ pain contributes to tiredness. Due to the symptoms of TMJ, the patient could lose a significant amount of sleep.
Lindner Dental can diagnose the problem by taking medical and dental history as well as taking x-rays. Some of the most common symptoms are listed below.
Below are some tips to help alleviate pain from TMJ.
