Sleep can be challenging for those with jaw pain, and pillows can exacerbate the pain as well as make it better, so a TMJ disorder patient should choose his or her pillow carefully.

There are several questions to ask yourself before you purchase a TMJ pillow:

  • Have you had TMJ surgery? If so, and you cannot put pressure on your ear area, you may want to find something that has a hole for your ear.
  • What position do you sleep in? On your side? back? stomach?
  • Do you need a specialty pillow? If you are having jaw surgery or need to prop yourself up, you may need to purchase a wedge pillow for your back, or a special pillow to put under your knees.
  • Do you have any allergies? or are there any materials you do not want in your pillow?
