Bring Your TMJ Pain to an End

August 30, 2018

If you are experiencing pain in your facial muscles along with pain in neck and shoulders, you might want to read further.

What is TMJ syndrome?

TMJ syndrome, short for Temporomandibular joint, is related to pain in jaw joints. The lower jaw or mandible is connected to the skull or temporal bone via TMJ. The10 facial muscles used for chewing are also connected to the mandible. If any problem appears in this area, you can end up with head, neck and ear pain. If this pain is severe, it may radiate to the shoulders as well. While TMJ dysfunction is reported more in women, a few men have also experienced this.

What are the Signs and Symptoms?

While a few symptoms have already been mentioned above, it is important to note the following signs as well:

  • Your jaw will make a clicking sound when you open/close it.
  • Whenever you open/close your jaw, it will lock in that position.
  • Swelling around the affected area.
  • Pain in and around the ears.
  • Migraine

How Can You Treat TMJ?

We are a big fan of the NTI Tension Suppression System as it has shown radical success in clinical trials. With NTI-TSS, an oral device is used to fit on your front top or bottom teeth. This small device will help you relieve stress from the TMJ. It will also help the tooth enamel and release it from stress. This is important because you might be wearing away the enamel without knowing and enamel does not grow back.

Unlike other mouth-guards you can pick up from a drugstore, this tiny appliance will be custom made for your mouth. With the help of exact measurements, it will be designed to fit your teeth properly and do the miracle you’ve long been waiting for.
