TMD Could Lead to Anxiety - Let Us Help

Posted on 3/25/2020 by Palisades Surgical Arts
TMD Could Lead to Anxiety – Let Us HelpOf all of the things that can be caused by TMD, such as headaches, difficulty chewing and swallowing, pain when talking, sensitivity to food and drinks, along with several others, most patients are quite shocked to learn that it can also lead to anxiety issues as well.

Here is how TMD can cause emotional turmoil in addition to the physical toll it takes:

Making an Already Stressful Situation Worse
One of the other little-known things about TMD is the fact that it can actually be brought on or made worse by stress and anxiety, as opposed to it being a physical issue exclusively. For people who tend to suffer flare ups of their condition during unusually trying or difficult times (such as work problems, relationship troubles, or any other form of stress), the TMD can then turn right around and contribute to more stress and worry in the patient, basically creating a harmful cycle that just continues to fuel itself.

How Reducing TMD Can Help

Getting treated for TMD is necessary even when there are no underlying issues with worry or anxiety involved. When there is the added concern of the emotional strain it is causing in addition to all of the physical problems that are normally associated with, then it becomes crucial to have a dental professional attempt to resolve the problem. Once the condition is back under control and being properly managed (or reversed) the emotional toll it takes on the patient should greatly diminish, significantly reducing the stress and anxiety that goes accompanies it.

To find out if your anxiety is related to the struggles you are having with TMD, give us a call as soon as you can. We may be able to help alleviate issues that you had no idea were tied to your current dental health.
