Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Could you tell me a little about what you'd like to discuss? Thanks
It can need a while, sometimes a few months even ad TMJD can be quite difficult to get rid of. Not impossible and the exercises definitely do work but it can take a little while I'm afraid. In the meantime pain killers and the exercises can help of course.
It can be because of the way the jaw is aligned or any issues with teeth over the years. Sometimes it travels in some families too. I'll include a link here for more information which is really helpful:
It can also be genetic or be related to how we chew and how the teeth/jaw aligned
Unfortunately most of the time we actually never find the precise cause. If there's no injury to the jaw or teeth problems, then we usually assume it's genetic in nature.
Yes I think that's an appropriate length of time to wait before exploring other options if needed still.
Yes absolutely that would be a good idea.
You're so welcome, glad I could help if a little. Do come back if you've questions in the future and all the very best.
Sure, here you go:
