What Causes TMJ?

TMJ stands for temporo-mandibular joint. It is the joint where your upper and lower jaws meet, and it can frequently become painful, a condition that is sometimes also referred to as TMJ. If you experience this kind of joint pain, visit your dentist’s office in Lake Stevens, WA to determine the cause and to get treatment.

Watch this video to learn about TMJ and some of the problems that can impact the joint. You may experience TMJ pain—which is also sometimes called TMD, or temporo-mandibular dysfunction—from grinding your teeth and poorly fitted dentures, among other causes. During a dental examination, your dentist can determine the cause of your TMJ so that he or she can treat the underlying problem and relieve your pain.
