How TMJ Disorder Causes Headaches
TMJ disorder, also known as TMJ dysfunction or TMD, results in bothersome and downright painful symptoms. Misalignment of the jaw joints can cause pain to radiate throughout the jaw, ears, head, and even the back. Many report that their pain tends to worsen during periods of increased stress. Often confused for tension headaches, these headaches are often the result of too much jaw clenching.
TMJ disorder can occur for a number of reasons, such as genetics, an accident or trauma to the face, or because of bruxism (teeth grinding). Whatever the cause, it is important to be aware that there are dentists who practice neuromuscular dentistry in Green Bay that can help.
