Do you often wake up with a sore jaw, a headache, or unexplained tooth damage? If so, you may be suffering from bruxism or temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). At SOPA Square Dental Clinics-Oral Medicine Clinic, we are committed to providing comprehensive oral medicine care to help you overcome these debilitating conditions and enjoy a pain-free, healthy smile.
Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It can occur during the day or at night, often as a result of stress, anxiety, or an abnormal bite. Left untreated, bruxism can lead to worn-down teeth, increased tooth sensitivity, gum recession, and even tooth loss.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
Temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD, is another prevalent issue affecting the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. TMD can cause symptoms such as jaw pain, difficulty chewing, and clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing the mouth. Like bruxism, TMD can significantly impact your quality of life and may lead to more severe dental issues if not addressed.
