How Severe Is TMJ/TMD Disorder?

TMJ/TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) severity varies widely among individuals. While some experience mild discomfort or occasional jaw clicking, others endure chronic pain, limited jaw movement, and even debilitating symptoms. Factors influencing severity include underlying causes like misalignment, bruxism (teeth grinding), arthritis, or trauma. Stress and poor posture can exacerbate symptoms. Ignoring symptoms may worsen the condition, leading to more severe pain and dysfunction over time. 

Early intervention with conservative treatments like jaw exercises, lifestyle modifications, and dental appliances can mitigate symptoms and prevent progression to severe stages. Consulting our dentist is crucial for proper diagnosis and tailored management.
