Your jaw plays a large role in your daily life, from talking, chewing and even yawning. The temporomandibular joint connects your skull’s temporal bones and your jaw, which gives you the ability to open and close your mouth. Those who experience problems with the joint can experience much pain and inconvenience.
Patients with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder frequently seek the advice and assistance of Dr. Zusko, to help relieve their symptoms. Although TMJ symptoms can range from mild to severe, patients who wait too long to visit Dr. Zusko can begin experiencing unbearable muscle pain or cause damage to their teeth or cosmetic treatments including veneers or dental implants.
Muscle or myofascial disorders cause pain in the facial or neck muscles that control jaw movement. This condition causes soreness and pain, and can contribute to:
- Teeth misalignment (poor bite)
- Tooth grinding and wear, or bruxism
- Missing teeth
- Muscle tension or spasm in the head and/or neck area
