TMJ Treatment at Magnolia Wellness Center in Tallahassee, FL
TMJ, or the temporomandibular joint, is a joint that acts as a flexible hinge, connecting the lower jawbone to the cranial. If this area becomes impaired, it can result in severe pain, swelling and difficulty in chewing and talking. Our Magnolia Wellness Center, located in Tallahassee, FL, offers our patients solutions for TMJ.
Common Causes of TMJ issues
Some reasons individuals might experience problems with their temporomandibular joint varies. It could manifest when a person has received a blow to the side of their face, for instance, if a person is playing sports and a ball is being tossed to them and instead of catching it, they miss and the ball hits them. This could cause the joint to become unhinged, resulting in needing treatment.
- Inflammation of the overall joints can create issues within the mandible; you might find people who suffer from certain types of arthritis having a higher risk of being compromised.
- People with overbites, in which their teeth do not mesh properly, could develop symptoms as well. In addition, those who have a habit of grinding their teeth could be placed into this category.
- In some cases, misalignment of the fifth cranial nerve, a sensory nerve of the face, can send false messages, resulting in the misalignment of the joint of the jawbone.
