The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint on each side of the jaw. The name is derived from the two bones that form the joint: the upper temporal bone (part of the skull), and the mandible (lower jawbone).

The following are the most common causes of TMD:

  • Malocclusion (misalignment of the teeth or bite problem
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding and jaw clenching).

Treatment for TMD

The appliance is a therapeutic device, worn continuously (day and night) until healing is achieved. These inconspicuous devices can also aid in achieving an ideal bite and curbing wear on teeth.
