Can TMJ cause burning, dry mouth?

I have TMJ caused by my nightly grinding and clenching. Lately it has been really bad and I wake up every morning with jaw, facial pain and a headache. I also have been suffering from burning tongue and mouth and my entire mouth feels dry and uncomfortable. Could my TMJ be causing this? I have been to the dentist and Dr, everything in my mouth looks normal and no one has any clear answers. I'm hoping someone here might be of help. I'm tired of feeling terrible.

Re: Can TMJ cause burning, dry mouth?

I have a similar problem as well with the mouth burning. Only recently I have been diagnosed with TMJ. I don't have headaches or jaw clicking just this odd burning sensation in my mouth, lips, even stomach....

Have you had a splint yet?

I have not been diagnosed yet with tmj but seem to have a lot of the symptoms attributed to tmj. I also have dry mouth and a feeling that my tongue just isn't sitting right.

Ilandgirl,

Did you see a dentist for your issues yet?

Are you mouth breathing? This can cause the saliva to dry out and leave you with a dry mouth.
Mouth breathing is associated with malocclusion (bad bite) which is in turn a trigger for TMJ issues

Re: Can TMJ cause burning, dry mouth?

Hello!

Sounds like you may need to have your Parotid Gland checked. TMJ can dammage the gland along with your Inferior Alveolar Nerve, I only know this due to my left gland had to be removed and I have lost my left sided nerve 100% due to numerous TMJ surgeries over the past 19 years. Hope you get some answers!
Take care!
Shirlett

Re: Can TMJ cause burning, dry mouth?

did you get to the bottom of this problem? I would be interested to know if you got a diagnosis as I have the same problem.
