Pain or Pressure In and About the Eyes
The temporalmandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most active joints in the human body. In fact, we use it for a multitude of activities, including breathing, chewing, and speaking. Because the TMJ is a joint with a two-sided hinge, when one side is misaligned, the other side also suffers and could cause a person extreme pain. When the muscles and joints are not properly aligned, you could suffer a number of side effects, such as pain or pressure in and around the eyes.
This pain and pressure behind and around the eyes can be very frustrating and painful to live with on a daily basis. At BridgeView Dental, our Austin neuromuscular dentists can assess the alignment of the joints and muscles in your jaw and take appropriate care to eliminate pain in and around your eyes. For more information about your options, contact us today at 512-347-8299 and schedule an appointment.
How Neuromuscular Dentistry Can Help
Certain studies show that around 10 million people living in the United States are currently suffering from a TMJ disorder and experience a number of side effects from teeth grinding to back problems and even headaches or pressure around the eyes on a daily basis. Because the TMJ is connected with a number of other areas, including the sinuses, oral cavity, and ear canal, many people suffer from headaches and pressure around the eyes.
Our dentists can implement a number of neuromuscular therapy treatment options to slowly realign your bite and eliminate this unwanted pain. The first step our dentists will take is to determine the proper position of your jaw before they perform any treatment or attempt to realign it to relieve unwanted symptoms.
