Chronic Jaw Pain Could Be Related to TMJ

The temporomandibular joint, commonly referred to as TMJ, connects your jaw to the base of the skull and should have a smooth movement when opening and closing your mouth. When someone suffers from TMJ disorder (TMD), their joint causes pain and discomfort. This pain can be anywhere from a mild discomfort to a chronic, severe pain. Around 35 million Americans suffer from some form of TMJ disorder. Dr. Howard Abrahams offers treatments for TMJ disorder at our Miami Beach practice to give you back your life.

TMJ Disorder Can Affect More Than Just Your Jaw

Not only does this cause discomfort and problems with the jaw, but those with TMD may experience chronic fatigue, headaches, trouble sleeping and back/shoulder pain. The majority of those affected by this condition are women, but men are susceptible too.

The Causes of TMJ Disorder

  • Arthritis of the jaw joints
  • Facial injury
  • Teeth grinding or clenching
