TMD Treatment In Beaumont May Stop The Pain

If you clench your jaws, grind your teeth, or have an unbalanced bite, eventually your chewing muscles can become fatigued, shorten, and go into painful spasms. Pain that originates in your jaw joints can spread to your temples or the back of your head and trigger migraines. It can also cause chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain.

Why does TMJ Disorder (TMD) develop?

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) plays a crucial role in how your jaw functions. It is comprised of joints on either side of your face that connect your jawbone to your skull. If it doesn’t function properly, you experience the pain described above.
