Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD)

Toothache

Although the cause of TMD is not clear, Dr. Kashfian believes that symptoms are the result of issues with the muscles of the jaw or parts of the joint itself.  Possible causes of TMD include injury caused by heavy blow or whiplash, causing injury to the jaw, temporomandibular joint, or head and neck muscles.  Other possible causes of TMD include:

•    Clenching or grinding of teeth, causing a lot of pressure to be placed on the TMJ (temporomandibular joints)

•    Dislocation of intricate parts of the TMJ

•    Presence of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis within the TMJ

•    Stressful events where individuals tighten facial and jaw muscles

Individuals who suffer from TMD often experience severe pain and discomfort, which can be temporary or may last many years.  Dr. Kashfian, Beverly Hills and Chatsworth temporomandibular disorders dentist, indicates that studies have revealed that more women experience TMD in comparison to men and this disorder is typically seen in those ages 20-40.

•    Limited ability to open mouth wide

•    Jaws that become stuck in the open or closed position

•    Clicking, popping, or even grating sounds within the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth
