MARYVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 5 Americans are reportingunprecedented levels of stress in their every day lives. Stress can bedevastating to our overall health and well-being but few people know it canlead to debilitating jaw pain.

To view the Multimedia News release, go to:

The American Dental Association estimates that 45 million Americans sufferfrom jaw pain. Symptoms vary but may include jaw clicking and/or locking,difficulty chewing, headaches and malocclusion. Most often, jaw pain is aresult of other stress-related conditions like TMJ / TMD (TemporomandibularJoint Disorders), bruxism (teeth grinding), sleep disorders and stress.

Now there is affordable, over-the-counter relief at your local retailer.New DenTek(R) Jaw Pain Relief Cream is the first clinically proven topicalanalgesic to reduce muscle pain at the point of contact. It reduces pain up to60% after only two weeks and even after stopping treatment, research indicatesa 40% reduction in pain is still in effect after five or more days.

The active ingredient, Methyl Salicylate (18%), acts as a counterirritantby creating a warming sensation at the point of pain; providing a distractionthat redirects the brain to focus on the alternative sensation versus theactual point of pain. This provides immediate relief while longer term reliefis associated with methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), a naturally occurring sulfurthat carries copper and zinc straight to the jaw joint reducing inflammation.

"DenTek's(R) Jaw Pain Relief Cream is now a part of many of our patienttreatment regimes," said Dr. Noshir Mehta, Director of the Craniofacial PainCenter at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. "TMJ & TMD sufferers inparticular have been in need of a topical pain reliever," he said.
