Sore Jaw: 3 Things To Do Immediately

What’s got your smile looking more like a frown these days? Is it the sore jaw associated with your TMJ disorder that you’re none too pleased about? If so, we have a few suggestions you should follow right away. They’ll help you find both relief and long-term improvement, so you can feel good again.

#1: Relax Every Single Day

We aren’t talking about the time you spend sleeping. We’re talking about setting aside time during the day for yourself, so you can take a deep breath, relax your jaw muscles, give your TMJs a break, and let your body work for your TMJ disorder, rather than against it.

#2: Contact Us

We’ve said this to you before and we will say it time and time again. If you’re struggling with TMJ disorder and either have not yet begun treatment of any kind or are in need of additional care, please feel free to contact us. When you make a stop at our practice, we can figure out what’s happening. Perhaps you require treatment for your TMJs, maybe your sore jaw is the result of something else. Arriving at solid, definitive answers is to your advantage.

#3: Hop On Board With Treatment

We know that the treatments we offer may seem foreign to you. You may have questions about them and may want a little time to think them over. No problem! This is an essential step in making choices that will support your jaw health, so you can wave goodbye to a sore jaw and TMJ disorder.
