Millions suffer from chronic facial and neck discomfort and recurring headaches due to Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD). Linked to your jaw joints, TMD can make everyday activities painful.
Symptoms range from jaw and ear pain to headaches, clicking sounds during jaw movement, and limited mouth opening. If these signs are familiar, Dr. Boucher can evaluate and plan your treatment.
While not all jaw pain signifies TMD, other preventative steps can help maintain oral health, like avoiding teeth grinding and gum chewing, using a headset, chewing food evenly, avoiding resting your chin on your hand, and keeping good posture.
Braces don’t necessarily cause TMD, but if you’re concerned, we’re here for a consultation.
