Welcome to our Clench Club Series! Where Noone Wants to Stay a Member…

Let’s talk TMJ.

Are you tired of that jaw-dropping sensation that’s not from awe, but from actual jaw pain? Do you find yourself massaging your temples more than texting back? If chronic headaches, earaches, or jaw-popping are part of your daily playlist, it might be time to face the music of TMJ.

What is TMJ?

Almost 12 million adults in the U.S. have TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint disorders), with women in the spotlight, particularly those fabulous ladies in their mid-thirties to early forties. At LUMIERE, we’re not just about dazzling smiles but also about restoring health and comfort to your jaw and your life.

Understanding the Jaw-Dropping Facts:

TMJ is the joint connecting your jawbone to your skull, essential for things like speaking, chewing, and smiling. But when your TMJ is off, the harmony turns into chaos, leading to what’s known as TMJ disorder. This could mean pain when chewing, a stiff jaw that won’t let you yawn freely, or even that creepy jaw locking when you least expect it.

Stress and TMJ:

Stress, be it mental, physical, or even sleep-related (yes, sleep apnea, we’re looking at you again!), loves to tango with your TMJ. It can lead to overworked jaw muscles and a night of teeth grinding. The result? More pain and stiffness.

Signs You May Already Be a Member of The Clench Club:

  • A jaw that feels like it’s doing morning stretches all day long
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds when you talk or chew
  • Ringing ears, because who doesn’t want more noise in their life?
  • An uneven bite that makes your teeth feel like they’re not in sync

Ready to break free from the pain and get back to grinning without grimace? 

  • Night Guards: The Prince of TMJ relief, keeping your teeth apart and your jaw relaxed while you sleep.
  • BOTOX® for TMJ: Not just a beauty shot! It’s like a spa day for your jaw muscles, easing the tension and calming the overactive muscle party that leads to pain.

If you are ready to say goodbye to TMJ discomfort and hello to pain-free days? Dial 617-847-1400 or book your appointment online with Lumiere Dental Spa today. 

Remember, you’re not alone in this jaw-jam, and we want you out of this club! Llet’s face TMJ head-on and with a smile. LUMIERE is here to transform your experience with TMJ.
