St Louis Jaw Pain

Amazing how much chewing you can do over the Thanksgiving holiday! This can really affect your jaw causing pain or can increase the jaw pain you have caused from your TMJ dysfunction (TMJD). When you have TMJD this can be a real PAIN.

TMJ Dysfunction Pain St Louis

TMJD can come from small injuries, like teeth grinding and altered mechanics of your jaw, or from major injuries like car accidents or direct trauma to your jaw. According to WebMD.com common symptoms include:

  • Pain or tenderness in your face, jaw joint area, neck and shoulders, and in or around the ear when you chew, speak, or open your mouth wide
  • Problems when you try to open your mouth wide
  • Jaws that get "stuck" or "lock" in the open- or closed-mouth position
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds in the jaw joint when you open or close your mouth or chew. This may or may not be painful.
  • A tired feeling in your face
  • Trouble chewing or a sudden uncomfortable bite -- as if the upper and lower teeth are not fitting together properly
  • Swelling on the side of your face
