TMJ and Teeth Grinding

Widely known as simply “TMJ,” temporomandibular joint disorders impact the jaw joints and surrounding muscles. A number of factors contribute to the onset of TMJ, with teeth grinding being one of those most common. Teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism) not only places strain on the jaw joints, but the harmful habit also wears down chewing surfaces of the teeth, creating unevenness in how the upper and lower teeth fit together. These biting discrepancies can also cause TMJ pain and discomfort, thus perpetuating joint problems. Patients engaging in bruxism often experience this cyclical pattern, and may benefit from a simple occlusal adjustment to correct uneven chewing surfaces.
