Today in the Jeff Gray DDS blog, we look at some of the conditions that may result in TMJ pain, a serious condition affecting many La Mesa residents.
TMJ is convenient shorthand for the temporomandibular joint, a big word for your jaw. Jaw pain may be caused by sinusitis. Sinusitis is the inflammation of the tissues that line your sinuses, and when these tissues are inflamed, the sinuses exert pressure on surrounding areas. If the inflamed sinus is near the jaw, pain in the jaw joint may result. This commonly happens with a cold or allergies.
The source of jaw pain can easily be identified at Jeff Gray DDS, and treatment can begin from there. But remember, jaw pain shouldn’t be ignored.
