If you regularly wake up with an aching jaw and a migrane, you might be suffering from Temporomandibular joint disorder – often referred to as "TMJ syndrome.” It means your TMJ joint -- the joint which connects your jaw and your skull -- is inflamed, and it can cause severe pain.
People feel TMJ pain in varying degrees, and there are many potential causes.
There are different ways to end the pain and discomfort caused by TMJ syndrome. If your teeth are misaligned, dental work may be required to restore proper occlusion. The team at Markham Eglinton Dental Centre can have you fitted with a special guard that will prevent your teeth from being damaged and keep your jaw from clenching while you sleep.
If you believe you may be suffering from TMJ syndrome, don’t delay in seeking help – contact Markham Eglinton Dental Centre today to learn more about treatment options.
