A Closer Look at TMJ

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the jaw joint. If there are any issues in this area, they can cause pain that results in the need to seek treatment for headaches in The Woodlands.

People who tend to clench or grind their teeth over and over might prematurely wear down the cartilage of their TMJ. This can cause pain that radiates all the way up to the ear, or down through the jaw and into the throat. It can even cause headaches or a feeling of fullness in the ears. You can learn more about TMJ problems in this video. If you are having any headaches or issues in the jaw area, schedule an appointment with your dentist to find the right treatment for you.
