Things to Avoid in Autumn if you Have TMJ

It’s autumn in Michigan! Whether you’re eating apples at a Cider Mill or clenching with fear at a Haunted House, keep in mind the effects that both can have on your jaw. For someone with TMJ, eating an apple or continuous clenching can worsen symptoms such as headaches, eye pain, ear pain, dizziness, an (of course) jaw pain. If you open wide to eat an apple and hear popping or clicking while you chew, you probably want to talk to your physician or dentist about a possible TMJ problem. Click the link below to be taken to our TMJ checklist and see how many symptoms you might be experiencing on a daily basis.
