TEST YOURSELF – right here, right now.
Disclaimer: This preliminary ‘Self Test’ will help you understand the symptoms of a TMJ disorder. A neuromuscular final diagnosis is required by a qualified dentist.
Your body’s ability to cope with chronic strain and stress lessens as you age
It may take decades before you are aware of a TMJ disorder. Many of the signs and symptoms of TMJ problems do not cause pain. You may be unaware of the destruction that is happening with your jaw joints, your teeth, and your spine. As you age, your ability to cope with this damage, with this constant stress and strain will be diminished. By then, the outcome of treatment may be compromised. The lesson is early diagnosis and treatment of any TMJ Disorders.
Pain – is a significant, but not the only signal for a TMJ dysfunction.Years of poor posture, wearing teeth, damage to jaw joints, neck vertebrae, loss of the bone and gum tissue around the roots of your teeth, are often slow processes of destruction without severe pain or other problems in an early stage.
But …! If you knew that your current TMJ symptoms will lead to future bigger issues, doesn’t it make sense to take action NOW? These are the facts:
- WAIT and it’s going to hurt more
- WAIT longer and it will be more expensive
- WAIT even longer and it will potentially damage your life
