Your muscles get sore from time to time, but as long as you can rest them, they heal naturally. But what if you have a sore jaw that doesn’t seem to go away? This could be a sign you have TMJ disorder, a serious condition that can make it hard to chew or even open your mouth. and unlike your other muscles, those in your jaw joints don’t heal naturally with TMJ disorder.
Thankfully, you can call Bell Dental Group at 513-802-9440 or use our online form to get TMJ treatment for your sore jaw. Our dentists have the training needed to use an oral appliance (similar to a mouthguard) that you wear at night. This can help your jaw muscles to finally get healed up so your jaw feels normal once again. Until then, take this short quiz to see how much you know about this surprisingly common problem.
