TMJ Problems And Your Child

Children who experience Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain sometimes say it aches when they chew, yawn or speak – or that the face and teeth hurt.

Key takeaways:

– Initially, your dentist will probably suggest treatment using a TMJ splint (similar to a mouth guard), or orthodontics.

– In rare cases, surgery may be necessary to correct the jaw position.

– Limit dense foods, use warm or cold packs, and try physical therapy to reduce discomfort.

TMJ issues are more common in girls; symptoms can increase with age.
