TMJ Dysfunction is more common than you think. The annoying thing, is that in most cases, it starts so slowly that we almost don’t notice it until we have some form of warning signal or symptom. It may be headaches, tight temples, restriction when eating or even clenching. These quiet symptoms eventually become far louder and results in clicking, cracking or even locking. These symptoms have a significant impact on our lives and pose future challenges to the overall alignment and integrity of our bite. Consider that one source, estimates around 300,000 people who use braces every year and that 75% of them are below the age of 19, it’s no wonder we should be concerned about the impact improper TMJ function can have on our alignment of our teeth.
