The TMJ Relief Pillow for TMJD & Jaw Pain
Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) is jaw pain that occur as a result of problems with the jaw, jaw joint (TMJ) and surrounding facial muscles that control chewing and moving the jaw. Like any joint in the body, the TMJ’s are subject to wear and tear, trauma, disease and degeneration.
What Causes TMJ Problems?
The most common cause for wear-and-tear is bruxism (grinding of the teeth), usually when asleep. Bruxing will produce sore or pain in the jaw muscles, especially upon waking in the morning.
Due to the supportive and tension releasing nature of the enVy Pillow it has been reported by many users to reduce their tendency to grind their teeth while sleeping. Most of us don’t realize that our teeth should never contact except lightly during chewing. When teeth are held together, or the jaw is held tense over a period of time, the facial and neck muscles become fatigued and painful. Morning and afternoon headaches, difficulty chewing, neck pain, and sore facial muscles are symptoms most commonly reported. Clenching at night causes the most pressure on the jaw and, therefore, is the most damaging.

Sleep Bruxism? Am I Clenching my Jaw at Night?
Current research shows that poor airway alignment and sleep disorders are major factors that contribute to patients developing a TMD or TMJ pain and chronic facial pain and jaw pain problems. In those people who snore or have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), excessive tooth grinding may occur as the jaw is constantly pushed forward during sleep in an attempt to open the airway. This condition is known as Sleep Bruxism. Over time, there may be tooth loss and the constant forces on the facial muscles and TMJ’s can lead to pain and dysfunction.
