To understand TMJ treatment realize most TMJ/TMD disorders result from bite problems (malocclusion), jaw muscle force imbalances, a jaw bone position misalignment in the jaw joint or a combination of these factors. The condition can develop gradually over time due to clenching or grinding the teeth (bruxism) often as a result of a sleep breathing disorder such as obstructive sleep apnea.
It can also develop gradually due to bone degeneration or dysplasia which takes time to develop. Sudden onset may be triggered by trauma such as a blow to the chin or opening your mouth too wide. It is important to contact our TMJ specialist at our Orange County TMJ treatment office.
