DenTek introduces cream to relieve jaw pain
MARYVILLE, Tenn. Oral care company DenTek has announced the launch of Jaw Pain Relief cream, a topical cream that is formulated to treat jaw joint and muscle pain.
The cream acts as a counterirritant by creating a warming sensation at the point of pain, providing a distraction that redirects the brain to focus on the alternative sensation versus the actual point of pain.
The product is part of a growing line of jaw pain management solutions from DenTek that includes DenTek Nightguard and DenTek Comfort-Fit Nightguard. These products address the related issues of teeth grinding, clenching and jaw pain.
The American Dental Association estimates that 45 million Americans suffer from jaw pain. The causes vary but can be a result of Temporomandibular Joint Disorders, teeth grinding, sleep disorders and stress. Besides pain, symptoms may include jaw clicking and/or locking, difficulty chewing, difficulty speaking or malocclusion. Jaw pain can also lead to ear, neck and shoulder pain.
