Does Cold Weather Hurt Your Jaw?

Posted on: November 9th, 2016 | Categories: Research Studies

Do you notice pain in your jaw when it is cold outside? Do you feel sharp pains in your jaw and teeth during chilly weather? If so, you may have a serious jaw issue that needs treatment by a specialist.

If you experience jaw pain in cold weather then you might suffer from a temporomandibular joint disorder, known as TMD or TMJ. While cavities could be the source of your pain, it is also likely that it is an issue with your jaw.

Other symptoms of TMJ or TMD include:
• Earaches
• Headaches
• Pain when chewing
• Pain when opening your mouth
• Clicking, grating, or popping sounds in your jaw

If you suffer from any of these issues as well as pain in your jaw in the cold then you need to visit your dentist. Your dentist can best address the situation and can move forward with a treatment plan.
