If you have been suffering from persistent headaches stemming from jaw pain, you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint dysfunction/disorder (TMJ/TMD). TMJ/TMD can be painful, often making everyday routines difficult. The cause can be the result of clenching or grinding the teeth or jaw, which leads to painful side effects. Often, the onset of TMJ/TMD is something that can be treated easily but without a proper diagnosis and general dentistry, you may continue to suffer.

For many people, the grinding or clenching of the teeth happens while asleep, making the root cause difficult to discern. These symptoms are not life threatening, but suffering from jaw pain that stems from TMJ/TMD can be very uncomfortable, even debilitating for some.
