A condition known as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) can damage your teeth and cause numerous muscular pains in the jaw and the head. What does the average dentist have to say? Here are three behaviours to avoid at all times:
- Try not to grind your teeth if you are nervous or anxious.
- Correct poor posture as it can lead to further tension within the jaw.
- Never use your teeth to open envelopes or chew ice.
”These conditions are often painful, leading to jaw soreness, an inability to open the mouth all the way and muscle tension.”
