The truth is: jaw pain after a car accident is incredibly common and it can cause long-term damage if left unchecked. As a dentist in the greater Indianapolis area, I see this fate all too often. Unfortunately, many people also tend to misidentify the symptoms of TMJ or jaw pain as something less significant. TMJ is very serious and includes a broad range of painful symptoms.

family dentist talks about which foods are good for your teeth
