TMJ Home Exercise


When you clench and grind your teeth, you can cause an imbalance in your jaw, making you more prone to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, jaw pain, and headaches.Although you should seek help from your dentist, doing an easy at-home exercise can help release some jaw tension. Take a cork from a wine bottle and hold it length wise between your front top and bottom teeth (without the bottle, Slugger). Now relax your jaw and mouth muscles around it for at least a few seconds (or forever is good). This helps ease some of the tension that’s built up from clenching and misalignment.
