What is TMJ?
Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (commonly known as TMJ or TMD) is used to describe several conditions affecting your TM joints (the joints where the head and jaw meet). TMJ is very common and usually involves issues with jaw muscles, ligaments, joints and discs, and may cause headaches, jaw aches, and earaches.
Often TMJ is brought on by teeth grinding and stress which can be treated with simple jaw exercises or a night-guard to prevent clenching and grinding in your sleep.
Another common cause of TMJ is bite misalignment which can cause stress on your jaw muscles and nerves. If this is the case we recommend receiving orthodontic care, which is also offered here at Stansbury Dental.
