As part of our normal care, we check out the condition of your joints.
Joint issues can manifest as toothaches, earache, headache, neck pain – not just joint pain. Often it is the result of a bite imbalance or bad grinding habits, which we can help you with. Many factors can contribute to joint issues.
Common symptoms are:
- Pain or tenderness in or around the joint, ear, neck, shoulders
- Clicking or grating
- Sore or tired feeling facial muscles
- Trouble chewing, changed bite
- Swelling around the joint
More common in people between 20 – 45 years of age, but can occur anytime. It can be an acute short term problem, or a chronic long standing one.
TMJ disorders can be difficult to diagnose.
