    VIRGINIA BEACH, VA, January 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain isn't easy to ignore. You may experience a sore jaw, stiff jaw muscles, pain in the jaw, neck or face and popping in the jaw joint. It's a stressful and tiring problem. If it starts to get worse, it's time to find a solution. Simple tasks, such as eating and talking, can become more difficult as time goes on. To find relief, talk to a health professional that can get you on the road to recovery. Dr. Randall Furman, dentist in Virginia Beach, VA, offers TMJ treatment at his dental practice in Virginia Beach.

"Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) affect your jaw joint and muscles surrounding it. More severe cases of TMD can restrict jaw movement, thus, causing jaw pain and stiffness. There are ways to help alleviate a great deal of this pain. It's just a matter of finding the right treatment for you," says Dr. Furman, Virginia Beach dentist.

There are many ways to treat TMJ problems-treatments are noninvasive and considered more of an alternative therapy. Some minor treatment options include muscle relaxants and aspirin. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication, such as aspirin, can help relieve muscle swelling and pain. Before taking medication, you should remember to talk to your doctor first.

For patients who don't want to take the medicinal treatment route, biofeedback is another option to consider. Biofeedback training teaches patients how to control muscle tension, specifically near the jaw area. If you are easily stressed, your muscles tend to be tenser, which is why you will feel muscles strain near your jaw joints. If you can learn to distress and control muscle tension, you may eventually relax your jaw, alleviating jaw pain.

If you still struggle with TMJ pain, it might be time to talk to your Virginia Beach dentist about a mouth guard. Mouth guard treatment is quite common, and many dentists utilize it to help keep patients' jaws from clenching. Typically, a mouth guard is used to keep your lower and upper teeth from grinding. A guard can also lessen clenching and move your jaw and teeth into a better position.
