Difficulty Chewing: A Comprehensive Guide

At TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Cleveland, we understand the frustration and discomfort that come with difficulty chewing, often associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Our comprehensive approach addresses the root causes of your symptoms to provide long-lasting relief and improve your overall quality of life.

What is Difficulty Chewing?

Difficulty chewing, also known as mastication dysfunction, is a common symptom experienced by individuals with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. The temporomandibular joint acts as a hinge that connects your jawbone to your skull. When this joint is not functioning properly, it can result in difficulty chewing, biting, or even opening and closing the mouth.

How does Difficulty Chewing relate to TMJ?

TMJ disorders can manifest in various ways, and difficulty chewing is one of the hallmark symptoms. Dysfunction in the TMJ can lead to pain, stiffness, and limited mobility in the jaw, making it challenging to perform everyday tasks such as chewing food properly.

Symptoms of Difficulty Chewing:

  • Pain or discomfort while chewing
  • Limited jaw movement
  • Clicking, popping, or grinding sounds in the jaw
  • Difficulty opening or closing the mouth fully
  • Uneven bite or difficulty biting down evenly
  • Muscle fatigue or soreness in the jaw

This is the office and staff to go to, for TMJ and or just sleep difficulties.
