|difficult swallowing, feeling of extraneous piece, changing voice, irritative cough, laryngitis/pharyngitis without infection|
To correctly understand this heading:
Remember that any stressed person who continuously clenches his teeth can elicite remote pain and associated dyscomforts from teeth (which are not only painful organs but also tactile one like the thumb and the index in opposite situation)
If You are interested the scientifical data are shown lower.
Don't forget to consult the associated headlings : "Clinical Data" and "Witness and experience"
POSSIBLE TROUBLES :
- hard swallowing
- feeling of extraneous part
- changing or raucous voice
- irritative cough
- laryngitis/pharyngitis (without infection)
Important research about non-algic inputs that may come from teeth is surprising.
In a person under stress, teeth and jaw clenching may result in the trigeminal nerve exerting constant deleterious pressure (see: above) on the glossopharyngeal nerve (IX) and the vagus nerve (or parasympathetic ) (X).
The superior laryngeal nerve, a branch of the vagus nerve, is one of the nerves involved in a number of TMD symptoms including voice.
In that case, ORL doctors will generally not observe signs of inflammation.
Kampe T, Tagdae T, Bader G, Edman G, Karlsson S. Reported symptoms and clinical findings in a group of subjects with longstanding bruxing behaviour. J. Oral . Reab. 1997 Aug;24(8):581-7
Signs and symptoms of cranio-mandibular dysfunction (CMD) and social medical history were reported in 29 subjects, aged 23-68 years, with longstanding (5 years or more) bruxing behaviour. The subjects were selected from answers to an advertisement in the local newspaper. The subjects presented many symptoms of a general character including somatic and psycho-social problems, sleep disorders (72%), and pain (86%). More than half of the subjects (55%) had symptoms every day. Frequent aches in the neck, back, throat, shoulders were reported by 69% and frequent headache by 48% of the subjects. The most common symptoms of CMD were pain in the face or jaws (48%), stiffness in the jaws in the morning (44%), temporomandibular joint (TMJ) sounds (34%) and fatigue in the jaws during chewing (38%) and the most common clinical signs were more than three muscles tender on palpation (76%), TMJ-sounds (55%) and tenderness of TMJ on lateral palpation (66%). There was a statistically significant correlation between frequent tooth clenching and headache, pain in the neck, back, throat or shoulders,sleep disorders and high scores of the clinical dysfunction index (Di). The frequent clenchers had higher score values than the 'non-clenchers' for pain in the face and the jaws; headache; pain in the neck, back, throat or shoulders and the clinical dysfunction index (Di). These findings indicate a causal relationship between frequent tooth clenching and signs and symptoms of CMD, including headache and pain in the neck, back, throat or shoulders and high pathogenicity for frequent clenching.
