Facial Pain

 

Many adults suffer from FACIAL PAIN.  This pain is often associated with Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction TMD, which is a condition caused by the disruption of the normal jaw function.  A person who has a narrow airway will tend to breathe through their mouth.  MOUTH BREATHING can cause improper tongue posture, leading to an unbalanced muscular system within the oral cavity.

 

This unbalanced system can cause a deformation of the jaws, a narrowing in its development and, over time, excessive wear of the teeth.  When the jaws become narrow, and the occlusion is damaged, the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is disrupted.  The disc that cushions movement within the TMJ is displaced forward and the lower jaw bone is displaced toward the back of the joint space.
