What Is TMJ?

Temporomandibular joint disease (TMJ) refers to disorders of the jaw, jaw joint, and surrounding facial muscles that control jaw movement. TMJ may be caused by the following:

  • Injury or trauma, such as dislocation
  • Grinding or clenching the teeth
  • Rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis
  • Stress that causes grinding of the teeth or a tightening of the facial and jaw muscles

What Is a TMJ Mouth Guard?

When grinding of the teeth causes the disorder, as commonly occurs during sleep, a TMJ mouth guard may be worn at night to protect the teeth from excessive wear. The mouth guard can also help to correct the bite by repositioning the teeth in their correct position. Wearing a TMJ mouth guard can help reduce further damage to the teeth and jaw.
