Dysfunctions of both the muscles of the jaw and the joint itself can cause radiating pain into your teeth as well as into your head, especially if your symptoms aren't always related to eating.

Jaw and tooth pain is not something most people normally associate with physiotherapy, however we are here to help!

If left untreated it can become more than just a sore tooth, seriously getting in the way of your gossip!
