Causes of TMD.

If the problem is disc related then it could be because the disc has become worn or moved out of alignment. The joint cartilage may be affected by arthritis. Sometimes the joint can be affected by trauma If the problem is muscle related, the jaw muscles may have been put under extreme stress by night time tooth clenching. This is called nocturnal bruxism and this may be caused by anxiety, medications and sleep disorders. If it is bite related, recent dental work may have put the normal tooth biting position out of sync. In many cases the cause of TMD is unclear. It seems to be more prevalent is females and there has been a suggested connection to female hormones.
