TMJ, otherwise known as Temporomandibular Disorder, affects thousands of people around the world. Many people with TMJ Disorder have a bite that is misaligned. This causes not only headaches, but also for your teeth to wear down due to grinding your teeth together when you sleep.TMJ also can cause jaw joint pain from clenching your jaw, too. Orthodontics is one of the most effective approaches used to help alleviate TMJ disorder symptoms. If your TMJ is caused by misalignment or bite problems, braces can be used to move your teeth back into the proper position. Once your teeth are positioned correctly, the TMJ will also shift back into its optimal alignment.
