Causes of TMJ Disorder

TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint. It’s the joint that connects your jawbone to your skull and allows your mouth to open and close. If this joint is causing you mild or severe pain, you may be experiencing the symptoms of a TMJ disorder (TMD).

Causes of TMD include:

  • Arthritis affecting the jaw joint
  • Injury to your jaw
  • Stress
  • Irregular bite
  • Genetics
  • Teeth grinding
  • Clenching your jaw muscles

  • Clicking or popping sounds when using your jaw

Treatment for TMJ Disorder

In order to recommend a proper treatment, we may take X-rays to get a better view of your jaw joint and your bite alignment. Your dentist can also do a physical examination of your teeth, mouth, and jaw.

Treatments that can improve the symptoms of TMD include:
