|•||Tooth Development: A malocclusion, or a bad bite, can occur naturally during tooth development, which can then lead to TMJ dysfunction. This includes overcrowded teeth and an open bite.|
|•||The Loss of a Tooth: When a patient loses a permanent tooth there can be an uncontrolled movement of neighboring teeth to fill the area, adjusting your bite. This adjustment can lead to severe problems.|
|•||Traumatic Facial Injury: An impact injury sustained in sports, a car accident, a fall, or a violent act, can lead to an adjustment in your jaw alignment. The results may not seem instantaneous, but the patient may experience problems that they do not realize are related such as facial pain or migraines.|
|•||Arthritis: As with all joints, the jaw joint can develop arthritis damaging the cartilage and causing pain and discomfort to the patient.|
|•||A popping or clicking sensation in the jaw joint.|
|•||A tired feeling in your jaw, or feeling that you need to relax it because it is tight.|
|•||A feeling of pain in your jaw joint.|
|•||Pain in your face, including your eyebrow, cheekbone, or even in your ear.|
|•||Unexplained migraines or neck pain.|
|•||Pain or sensitivity in your teeth, though a dentist does not see any particular problem.|
