Understanding TMJ/TMD

The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is the hinge connecting the jawbone to the skull, crucial for jaw movements. Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) encompass problems affecting the TMJ and surrounding muscles and tissues. Symptoms often include:

  • Jaw pain
  • Clicking or popping sounds in the jaw joint
  • Jaw stiffness or limited movement
  • Jaw locking (open or closed)
  • Teeth clenching or grinding (bruxism)
  • Pain in the cheeks or temples

Causes of TMD

TMD can arise from various factors, with the most common being involuntary clenching or grinding of the teeth, often during sleep or periods of high stress. This type of TMD can fluctuate in severity based on stress levels.

Other potential causes include:

  • Displacement of the jaw joint disc
  • Osteoarthritis-related joint damage
  • Inflammation or swelling within the joint
  • Muscle strain from poor posture
  • General joint inflammation or strain
