The quick answer is no, not really. Chewing gum may temporarily relieve jaw pain caused by a temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) or bruxism. Chewing can help stretch and relax the jaw muscles and temporomandibular joint (TMJ). However, it is essential to note that chewing gum should not be used as a long-term solution for jaw pain. It is necessary to consult with a dentist or a medical professional if you are experiencing persistent jaw pain. Chewing gum can be used with other treatments such as physical therapy, medication, or orthotic devices. It is also important to mention that excessive gum chewing can lead to jaw pain and muscle discomfort.
