TMJ Disorder Queen Creek AZ

 

 

Many people, adults and children, suffer from chronic jaw pain or facial pain.  Some symptoms that are fairly common are pain in or around the ear, tenderness of the jaw, pain when biting, or headaches.  There are several things that cause facial pain, so it can be difficult to diagnose and treat.  If you are experiencing any chronic symptoms like this, speak to your dentist so they can conduct a thorough examination.  This may include x-rays.  Most facial pain can be treated, as long as the cause can be pinpointed.  Often it is something relatively simple.  If you fear it may be because of grinding, ask a loved one to pay attention to you while you are sleeping.  There are also sleep studies that can be done and a professional can watch you to see what your sleeping habits are. TMJ Disorder Queen Creek AZ
