The complicated temporomandibular joint (jaw) can become tight or painful for various reasons. A dentist can often help with diagnosis and treatment.
– Grinding your teeth creates tension in the jaw and damages enamel.
– Poor alignment of upper and lower teeth can strain jaw muscles.
– Clicks, pain and tension of the jaw should be checked out.
A dentist can offer treatment for teeth grinding and improper bite to help prevent jaw pain and uneven wear on teeth.
“Teeth grinding can have numerous causes, with the most common being stress and an improper bite.”
