What is TMD?

TMD encompasses a group of disorders that affect the TMJ, which connects the lower jaw (mandible) to the skull. This joint plays a crucial role in everyday activities like talking, chewing, and swallowing. When there is dysfunction or impairment in the TMJ, it can lead to TMD. TMD is a term used to describe a range of conditions that cause pain and dysfunction in this joint and the surrounding muscles and tissues.

Causes of TMD

The exact causes of TMD are not always clear-cut, as it often involves a combination of factors. Some common factors and triggers include:

  1. Muscle Overuse or Strain: Excessive clenching or grinding of teeth, which can be a response to stress, can strain the jaw muscles and contribute to TMD.

  2. Trauma or Injury: Direct impact to the jaw or head, as well as whiplash injuries, can damage the TMJ and lead to TMD.

  3. Arthritis: Inflammatory joint conditions like osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis can affect the TMJ and contribute to TMD.

  4. Malocclusion: Misalignment of the teeth or an improper bite can put stress on the TMJ, leading to TMD over time.

  5. Bruxism: Habitual teeth grinding or clenching, often during sleep, can lead to TMD.

  6. Stress: Emotional and psychological stress can result in muscle tension and jaw clenching, exacerbating TMD symptoms
