TMD may be caused by a trauma. This includes an injury to the jaw as well as an overuse by chewing, including gum, excessively or using one side of your mouth too much.
Many doctors attribute the syndrome to genetic, hormonal or anatomical causes. Stress and anxiety may exacerbate the symptoms of TMJ Syndrome. Emotional distress may be more of a consequence of the pain associated with TMJ leading to worsening of the symptoms. However, there is no reason to live with the pain! We can help TMJ sufferers, especially if it is a chronic condition.
