What Is TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Dysfunction?
Commonly experienced by adults, as well as by some children, temporomandibular joint dysfunction is a condition that affects the teeth, jaws, ears, and head and neck muscles. A simplistic explanation of TMJ disorder is that it causes the patient to grind their teeth, typically while sleeping or experiencing periods of stress. The persistent grinding and teeth clenching can contribute to chronic head and neck pain and wearing down of the surface of teeth.
