By Pressure Positive September 19, 2014 No comments
When it comes to pain we'd rather live without. Toothache and TMJ (Jaw Joint) pain certainly rank among the least tolerable.

Join us for a free 1 hour Webinar sponsored by Custom Craftworks, a brand of Pivotal Health Solutions.The TMJ Association states that TMJ Disorders are a complex and poorly understood set of conditions characterized by pain in the jaw joint and surrounding tissues and limitation in jaw movements. The trigeminal nerve (located directly behind the TMJ) is the most complex nerve in your body.

I have experienced all the painful symptoms associated with TMJ, including difficulty chewing and opening my mouth, horrible headaches, earaches, face pain, and constant muscle spasms. So I know how much it hurts, and I know how much the pain of TMJ can literally take control of your life. My struggle with TMJ began at 14 when I got braces. Since that time, I've tried pain relievers, multiple bite splints, and after suffering a whiplash injury from a car wreck, I had my jaws surgically reconstructed and wore braces again for two years. But the medications, the bite splints, the surgery and braces didn't relieve my pain. After all this, I was completely frustrated and felt like there was no hope...
