Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) describes a variety of conditions which affect the jaw joint(s) and or the muscles around the jaw. It is a very common condition, affecting more than a quarter of the population worldwide. It can be due to problems in the muscles, problems in the joints, or a bit of both.
Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) is mostly not serious and symptoms usually only last a few months before getting better. However, symptoms may come back from time to time in a cyclical fashion. Many people have some signs of TMD, but only a small number suffer pain or other symptoms
Nowadays, it is believed that Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) is caused by many things acting together. Symptoms such as discomfort and pain can be caused, prolonged, or made worse by the following factors which may act alone or in combination with one another:
A recent lengthy dental visit that involved wide opening for a long period of time
Injury to the area (a blow to the face or surgery)
Some dentists used to think that Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) was caused mainly by the way the jaws and teeth lined up. But research has shown that misalignment of the jaws and teeth is not a major cause of Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD)
Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD)does not usually keep getting worse. In the majority of cases the problem tends to come and go, often feeling worse during times of increased emotional stresses. Studies demonstrate that it does not tend to get worse with age. The important thing is to get the problem diagnosed and effectively treated.
