Jaw, joint, or facial pain may be TMJ
TMJ/Joint and Facial Pain or Headaches
McGlone Dental Care, Denver Colorado
If you are having joint, jaw or facial pain, including headaches, Dr. McGlone can examine and determine what the problem is and then treat the underlying issue to give you relief from the pain and discomfort.
Many times, your joint, jaw, facial pain and headaches can be caused by a common condition called "bruxism" or in laymen terms, TMJ or teeth grinding. You may not even know you are grinding and probably do it while you're asleep. Night guards are an easy way to prevent the wear and damage that teeth-grinding causes over time. Dr. McGlone can custom fit you for a comfortable and perfect fitting night guard.
