Tooth Pain & Jaw Pain

Tooth Pain

Temporomandibular joint dysfunction or TMJ can be the source of annoying oral symptoms you may be experiencing. The temporomandibular joint includes the hinge joints on both sides of the jaw. TMJ symptoms are caused by dysfunctional tendons or cartilage in the jaw joint. Bones and muscles under stress located in this area can also lead to TMJ symptoms.  Our family dental practice, in St. Francisville, LA, offers TMJ treatment as part of our general dentistry services. 

There are many causes contributing to TMD. Some causes can be arthritis, stress from bruxism, or even tendon issues. Noticing and identifying the symptoms is important.

Jaw Pain

Identifying the cause of jaw pain can be slightly more tricky. Issues with your teeth or jaw joint tend to be the most common culprits in triggering jaw pain. You may have TMJ or misalignment issues. Jaw pain treatments can include things like nightguards and orthodontics
