What is TMJ?
TMJ stands for the temporomandibular joint, the jaw joint that allows you to open and close your mouth. If this joint is compromised in some way, it can be difficult to open your mouth wide, chew food without discomfort or even smile. When a patient is diagnosed with TMJ disorder, they may have a misaligned bite and experience TMJ pain around the neck and face.
What Causes TMJ Disorder?
A misaligned bite is one of the common causes of tension and stress around the neck and jaw. This can be easily corrected with an occlusal adjustment. Common reasons patients develop this disorder include:
- High stress levels
- Trauma to the neck or face
- Arthritis affecting the jaw bone
- Hormonal shifts
- Bite problems – malocclusion
