Millions of American’s suffer from the effects of temporomandibular disorder (TMD, also known as “TMJ”). The symptoms of TMD, which is named after the joint that connects the jaw to the skull, include:
- Popping sounds in the jaw
- Inability to fully open the mouth
- Jaw pain
- Other types of facial pain
Clenching and grinding the teeth during the day and/or at night while you sleep is a key factor in the progression of TMD. Left untreated, it can lead to a worsening of symptoms over time and can also cause significant damage to the teeth.
