1. JAW PAIN & TMJ (TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DISORDER)
is the common name for a group of conditions, often painful, that affect the jaw joint (temporomandibular joint, or TMJ) and the muscles that control chewing. Another name used is "TMD", which stands for temporomandibular disorders. Generally,discomfort from TMJ is occasional and temporary, often occurring in cycles, and the pain
eventually goes away with little or no treatment. Only a small percentage of people with TMJ pain develop significant, long-term symptoms. TMJ affects about twice as many women as men.
2. CAUSES OF TMJ

established cause of TMJ.
Mental or Physical Stress: Some experts believe that mental or physical stress may cause or worsen TMJ.
Other Causes: Other causes of TMJ are less clear. The latest evidence suggests that TMJ is not caused by a bad bite (malocclusion), orthodontic treatment (e.g.,braces and headgear), gum chewing, or jaw ...more
