At Sleep Apnea & TMJ Solutions in Brentwood and Murfreesboro TN, we know it can be hard to discern between a regular headache and TMJ pain. Headaches are caused by all sorts of things: stress, lack of hydration, uneasy sleep, or even ingesting the wrong foods.
Due to this confusion, our team has put together a primer in the form of a list. Our hopes are that our readers can use this information as a resource when choosing whether to come in for TMJ treatment. However, this is not an all-encompassing list.
Our best tip is always to come in regardless of your suspicions, in order to ascertain the cause of your pain professionally.
The Symptoms of TMJ Pain
Since we know pain is often a symptom of many issues, we recommend coming in for TMJ treatment if you or your loved one is experiencing two or more of these symptoms.
- Jaw tightness
- Misaligned bite
- Bad posture
- Bruxism (teeth grinding)
- Stress or anxiety
If you are just suffering from pain, it might not be TMJ, but we encourage you to come to Sleep Apnea & TMJ Solutions in Brentwood and Murfreesboro TN anyway. If you find that you suffer from more of these symptoms, though, there’s no time to wait! Patients come to us for TMJ treatment and sleep apnea solutions. Contact us today!
