You may have heard someone talking about a TMJ problem, and you may be wondering if you could have it, too.

TMJ issues are relatively common. TMJ is short for temporomandibular joint. You have two of these joints, which are located where your lower jaw connects to your skull. These joints allow you to open and close your mouth.

TMJ disorders can be caused by a number of things, including arthritis, injuries, and alignment issues. One of the most common causes of TMJ troubles is teeth grinding, which millions of people do in their sleep.

If you suspect you might have a TMJ problem, take a look at our infographic below to find out if you have any of these common symptoms. If so, please call 843-627-4076 or contact our Florence, SC dental office online to set up an appointment.
