Wisdom Teeth and TMJ
Did you know that some people don’t even have wisdom teeth? Lucky them! Extraction of wisdom teeth in Aventura is needed when these molars do not grow correctly or become impacted. If they aren’t removed, the wisdom teeth will lead to jaw pain and can soon make you wonder if you’ve developed a TMJ disorder.
How is Wisdom Teeth Associated with TMJ Disorder?
Wisdom Teeth Causes Jaw Pain
When wisdom teeth grow, they often create spacing issues that become the primary culprit of the pain. The crowding and movement of your teeth may result in excess stress on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and jaw. When left untreated, the stress can lead to pain and discomfort which can later develop into a TMJ disorder.
While it is fairly rare for impacted wisdom teeth to cause TMJ disorder, the possibility of developing TMJ disorder due to impacted wisdom teeth should never be dismissed.
Will Wisdom Teeth Extraction Stop the Pain?
In most situations, the removal of wisdom teeth provides relief to your jaw and mouth. However, in some cases, you will have to visit a TMJ expert if the pain persists. There is a potential need for TMJ pain treatment, therapies, and repositioning of your jaw.
