What causes TMJ?
There can be several factors that can lead to TMJ. If due to any reason your teeth or your facial muscle is under stress, there could be a problem in your jaw joints. Some of the common reasons of TMJ may be bruxism, or the grinding of teeth, head injuries, arthritis, or misalignment of the upper and the lower jaw.
Since there are multiple factors affecting TMJ, treating a case of TMJ will be specific according to the type and cause of your pain. Some can be treated by reprogramming your muscles with the help of high-end devices, while some can be treated using physical therapy and manual corrections. Please consult the dentist if you feel any symptom related to jaw joint dysfunction.
