4 Surprising Benefits of Swift TMJ Treatment

Are you experiencing uncomfortable symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, or a popping sound in your ears? Here are 4 reasons why you should never put off TMJ treatment.

Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders (TMJ) are a group of conditions that cause dysfunction and pain in the jaw joint and muscles. Failing to seek treatment for TMJ can cause many serious and uncomfortable symptoms, including:

  • Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
  • Radiating pain in the face, jaw, or neck
  • Clicking/popping sounds in your ears
  • Stiff or sore jaw muscles
  • Locking of the jaw joint

4 Reasons Why You Should Never Postpone TMJ Treatment

Whether it’s fear of the dental chair or anxiety over treatment costs, many patients tend to ignore oral health symptoms such as jaw discomfort or chipped teeth. However, neglecting to address such issues will set the stage for the problem to become more advanced, resulting in the need for more extensive, and expensive, dental treatment.

If you are experiencing symptoms such as migraines, radiating pain in your face/jaw/neck, and flattened teeth, then you should talk to your dentist as soon as possible.

Here are 4 reasons why you should never put off TMJ treatment:

1. TMJ Can Affect Your Quality of Life

You should never feel uncomfortable eating, talking, or smiling. When neglected, TMJ can make these everyday pleasures not only inconvenient, but also painful. For many patients, the constant disruption caused by the symptoms of this disorder, such as jaw soreness or migraines, can deeply affect their quality of life.

Changes in Appearance

In some cases, TMJ can have a dramatic effect on your appearance, including facial asymmetry and chipped/cracked teeth. When TMJ does damage your teeth, you may start to feel self-conscious about your smile and appearance, which in turn makes it difficult to have a healthy and happy social life.

2. You Aren’t Aware of the Extent of Damage TMJ is Causing

While you may think that TMJ only results in some jaw pain, this oral condition is related to many undesirable symptoms, including:

  • Ringing or popping sounds in your ears
  • Frequent migraines
  • Dizziness/Vertigo
  • Neck and back pain
  • Numbness or tingling sensation in the fingers

When you consider all the secondary complications that could be related to diminished strength, loss of sleep, and physical pain, TMJ could be the underlying cause of many health issues you are facing.

3. You’ll Experience a Loss of Productivity

Untreated TMJ pain can significantly harm your productivity and job performance. Not only will migraines or jaw pain contribute to absences from work, but it’ll also make it more difficult to concentrate and focus while doing your job.

In addition, TMJ pain that is left untreated can lead to social anxiety and other mental health symptoms, such as:

  • Increased stress
  • Sleepless nights and lethargy during the daytime
  • Irritability
  • A tendency to withdraw from social situations

Live a Happy, Pain-Free Life

When you think about all of the things you could accomplish if you weren’t limited by your TMJ pain: working harder, earning a promotion and developing your personal relationships, why would you continue just getting by, when you could be living a pain-free and happy life? Seeking TMJ treatment will eliminate any pain you have and allow you to live life to the fullest.



4. You May Have Something More Serious Than TMJ

While it’s rare, your jaw pain could be an indication of something more serious than TMJ. Jaw pain could be a sign of a heart attack, cardiovascular issues, or even oral cancer. Visiting your holistic dentist and getting evaluated for TMJ can determine whether or not your symptoms are being caused by TMJ or something more serious.
