Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ)
Temopromandibular disorder can develop for many reasons. You might clench or grind your teeth, tightening your jaw muscles and stressing your temporomandibular joint. Or you may have a damaged jaw joint due to injury or disease. Whatever the cause, the results may include a misaligned bite, pain, clicking or grating noises when you open your mouth, or trouble opening your mouth wide.
Temporomandibular disorders are treated with upper or upper and lower removable appliances.
