[WATCH] Teeth Grinding and TMJ Pain Go Hand-in-Hand

 

The number of patients who’ve come to Pasadena Pain Management with TMJ disorders has grown significantly in the past decade. Nationwide, 7 out of 10 people will be effected by TMD at some point in their lives. That’s roughly 10-million people with varying degrees of TMD!

When the  temporomandibular joint — also known as the jaw joint — becomes inflamed or injured by trauma and begins to malfunction, it’s referred to as temporomandibular disorder (TMD). Interestingly enough, the primary presentation of TMD (next to jaw pain) is bruxism, or teeth grinding.

In the above video, watch as I am able to pinpoint and diagnose a patient’s TMD using Joint Vibration Analysis (JVA). Through this high-tech analysis and software, not only did I diagnose this patient with TMD, but I was also able to identify the root case of the disorder: Teeth grinding.
