The Brought to you by: Dr. Gregory Sawyer, DDS THE TOOTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TOOTH Head and Neck Pain: Part 2 Last week I proposed that a lot of head and neck pain symptoms can be traced to the muscles of the neck, face, or jaw and sometimes the jaw joint itself, known as the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Before we can discuss the causal relationships of these structure, lets explore a little head and neck anatomy. Ready? rll keep it simple. The TMJ is a unique joint in the human body, it is the only one that not only hinges like every other joint, but also slides from front to back. This property allows you to jut your jaw forward to bite your front teeth edge to edge and also let it settle back and bite down powerfully with your molars. The lower jaw (or mandible) is the only moveable component, while the upper jaw (maxilla) is connected to the other bones of the skull. There are four primary muscles that operate the jaw and several others that assist.The mandible sort of floats in it's position, being supported only by muscles and ligaments. There are countless possible locations for the mandible, but generally one most ideal location for the joint that is usually the most comfortable.This is called the centric hinge axis. It is best if this ideal hinge axis coincides with idea and most comfortable bite position of the teeth. If these factors are not coordinated it doesn't feel very good. The muscles get very tired, tense and chronically contracted. This can cause severe head, neck and headache pain. The headaches can feel as severe as the classic migraine.
