Jaw Pain can be a result of several health conditions, from a minor toothache injury to a heart attack, and the discomfort can range from minor to severe. Though the reasons causing Jaw Pain may vary, the most common reason for this pain is TMJ, Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction.
TMJ can be caused due to an injury in the jaw joint, damage to muscles controlling jaw movement, or excess joint stimulation.
What is the cure?
So if you are suffering from persistent jaw pain, getting it diagnosed should be the first course of action, as you may be suffering from TMJ Dysfunction. Proper diagnosis will help us know the root cause of the problem and the appropriate treatment.
You need not worry about the surgery as TMJ disorder treatment can be done through physiotherapy.
Other underlying causes for jaw pain include dental problems, cluster headaches, sinus problems, and heart-related problems.
