TMJ Pain: Be Realistic About Treatment

We know that sometimes, the last thing you want to do is face a problem. As a result, when TMJ disorder shows up in your life, you may decide that you’d rather pretend it isn’t there for as long as possible. You may even convince yourself that it might go away all by itself! However, the truth is that TMJ problems usually get worse, which can lead to pain and damage, which can then become more and more complicated to treat. We encourage you to be realistic about TMJ treatment, so you can avoid making things harder! Find out what we mean.

Be Realistic: You Really Do Need It

First, as mentioned, we encourage you to have a realistic outlook on what’s going on with your TMJs. You have TMJ disorder, which means two things: You can treat the problem with very easy to accomplish treatment that we offer, which will keep you from ending up with severe jaw joint problems. Or, you can ignore the need for treatment and then attempt to recover much later once you’re experiencing damage you could have avoided initially! We always suggest treatment.

Be Realistic: Some Not So Great Things Happen Without Treatment

It’s true that you may not be noticing a whole slew of symptoms at the moment with your TMJ disorder. However, they will eventually show up and, if you’re like most patients, you will find yourself thinking that earlier TMJ treatment would have been a good choice! Staring immediately is always a wise plan. The reality of TMD might include:

  • A loud jaw that produces snapping, cracking, popping sounds
  • Pain while chewing
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Sore shoulders and backaches
  • Ear Pain
  • Challenging chewing
