After suffering from frequent headaches, migraines, and jaw pain, you probably found yourself in a dentist’s chair asking for answers. After seeing your worn and/or broken teeth and listening to clicks and pops in your jaw, they might have given you a diagnosis with a temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Although you received a diagnosis, you never moved forward with treatment. Or your dentist gave you a nightguard to wear and you have yet to experience any relief.
Whether you’re not using any treatment recommended by a dentist or the treatment they provided you isn’t working, your TMJ disorder isn’t being properly treated. Without proper treatment, a number of problems can pop up. Discover what happens if you let your TMJ disorder go untreated and how our Nashville neuromuscular dentist can help.
