Holiday Stress can Make TMJ Symptoms Worse

 In Bruxism, Stress and TMJ

Bruxism (tooth grinding) is a common cause of TMJ. In turn, this habit can lead to headaches, jaw pain, generalized facial pain, and oral health issues such as uneven tooth wear and premature tooth loss. If you are a grinder, you may find the stress of family holidays such as Thanksgiving often serves to make matters worse. Beaverton family dentist Dr. Michael Negru understands these stresses and is here to help you address your bruxism with a customized neuromuscular dentistry treatment.

If you are looking for a safe and effective solution for both daytime and nocturnal bruxism, please call 503-848-3606 today to schedule a neuromuscular treatment evaluation at our comfortable Beaverton office.

Neuromuscular treatments offered by Dr. Negru include:

  • TENS therapy
  • Prescription medications
  • Customized orthotics
  • DNA appliance therapy

These treatments may be used in combination with stress reduction techniques such as deep breathing and other methods of relaxation. During your neuromuscular consultation Dr. Negru will listen to your concerns, discuss all of your options, and help you determine the best ways to maintain comfort and relaxation throughout the Holiday Season.
