Free From TMJ Migraines With THE RIGHT BITE Craniofacial Pain Care

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is the joint that attaches your jaw to the bottom of your skull, allowing smooth movements of your mouth. It is present on both the sides. However, it so happens that sometimes the joints loosen and do not function properly, this results in a condition known as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD).

When do you know that you have displaced your TMJ?
  • When you feel tenderness in your jaw
  • Pain in the temporomandibular joints
  • Pain in and around the ear
  • Difficulty in chewing food
  • Facial pain
  • Locking of the joint.

Causes of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder
  • Dislocation of the jaw
  • Teeth are not lined up in order
  • Habitual grinding of teeth
  • Arthritis
The dislocation of the temporomandibular joint causes migraine headaches which can be difficult to tolerate.

How can you tell it is a TMJ headache and not the other form of headaches?

TMJ disorder related headaches are generally confused with tension headaches, but by paying more attention to your symptoms you will be able to tell the two apart. TMJ headaches come with the following symptoms:
  • A crackling sound when you move your jaw
  • Stiffness in the temporomandibular joint
  • Difficulty in opening and closing your mouth due to the stiffness
  • Facial tenderness and pain
  • Earache.

How To Ease TMD Pain?
  • Chewing gums and keeping the momentum of your mouth
  • Stress is a common trigger. So keeping stress at bay might help
  • Massaging your jaw gently will increase the blood flow to the area and give some relief to the locked jaws
The stiffness and the headache you feel is not a minor problem and it should not be ignored. It is always advisable to seek treatment at the earliest.
