Dr. Kimmel Explains His Approach On TMJ

The Factors Contributing to TMD May Surprise You

Problems with the TMJ and surrounding muscles are collectively known as Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD). Though the exact cause of TMD is not entirely understood, we have identified several factors contributing to the onset and persistence of this common oral problem.

Factors often contributing to TMD include:

  • Bruxism (teeth grinding/clenching)
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Uneven bite
  • Trauma or injury
  • Orthodontic treatment
  • Parafunctional habits
