Causes of TMJ/TMD

There are several potential causes of TMJ. Trauma to the head, neck, or jaw area can lead to problems. It can also be caused by clenching or grinding your teeth. Malocclusion (meaning “bad bite”) is another possible culprit. Your teeth are meant to fit neatly together, but poor alignment can lead to unwanted stress on the temporomandibular joint (the joint connecting the jawbone to the skull).

If you experience the following symptoms, you might be suffering from TMJ:

  • Headaches and migraines
