Temporomandibular Disorders

What causes TMD?
In many cases, the actual cause of this disorder may not be clear. Sometimes the main cause is too much strain on the jaw joints and the muscle group that controls chewing, swallowing, and speech. This strain may be due to bruxism. This is the habitual, involuntary clenching or grinding of the teeth. Injury to the jaw, the head, or the neck may also cause TMD. Arthritis and displacement of the jaw joint disks can also cause TMD pain. In other cases, another painful health condition such as fibromyalgia or irritable bowel syndrome may overlap with or worsen TMD pain. A recent study by the NIDCR identified clinical, psychological, sensory, genetic, and nervous system factors that may put a person at higher risk of developing chronic TMD.
What are the symptoms of TMD?
  • Jaw discomfort or soreness (often most common in the morning or late afternoon)
  • Headaches
  • Pain spreading behind the eyes, in the face, shoulder, neck, or back
  • Earaches or ringing in the ears (not caused by an infection of the inner ear canal)
  • Clicking or popping of the jaw
  • Locking of the jaw
  • Limited mouth motions
  • Clenching or grinding of the teeth
  • Dizziness
