Every time we talk, chew, bite down, or swallow we put the TMJ to work. This condition produces pain in the muscles and joints of the jaw that can radiate to the face, neck, and head and even the shoulders. There also may be difficulty opening the mouth all the way, or clicking and popping noises when chewing, yawning, or moving the joint. The most common causes of TMJ are a poor bite, and stress, combined with grinding of the teeth, especially at night. Gum chewing can make this problem even worse. Headaches are a common symptom.
