I grind my teeth…Is that something to worry about?

Do you wake up with a sore jaw or a headache? If your teeth are worn down or if you have ear pain, headaches or facial pain, you may be grinding your teeth at night. Teeth grinding is something to worry about. If not treated, it can lead to a number of conditions including temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), chronic facial pain, headaches or migraines. At AZTMJ, Dr. Stan Farrell is one of the best-qualified doctors in the country for treating TMD caused by teeth grinding. His state-of-the-art treatments are proven to alleviate pain over the long term without the dangers of addiction to prescribed medications. Dr. Stan Farrell’s non-invasive approach to treating TMD, which includes the use of a dental splint device, can often reposition the jaw without discomfort and helps strengthen facial muscles to assist in maintaining the proper jaw position over the long term. If you or someone you know is experiencing jaw pain or any type of facial pain please schedule an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Farrell at 480-945-3629 or visit us at www.headpaininstitute.com for more information.
