TEST YOURSELF-find out now.
Disclaimer: This preliminary ‘Self Test’ helps you understand the symptoms of a TMJ disorder. A neuromuscular final diagnosis will be required by a qualified dentist.
As you age, your body’s ability to cope with chronic strain and stress decreases
It may take decades before you are aware of a TMJ disorder. Many of the signs and symptoms of TMJ problems are painless. You may be unaware of the damage that is happening with your jaw joints, your teeth, and your spine. Over time, your ability to cope with this damage, and constant stress and strain will be diminished. By then, treatment outcomes may be compromised. The lesson is early diagnosis and treatment of any TMJ Disorders.
