TMJ Dentist

Many people in the Warwick area suffer from TMJ disorder. The exact cause of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder is not fully understood. According to Dr. Kaiser, some factors are related to an improper bite, injury, arthritis, severe stress, or a combination of factors. Clenching or grinding teeth, a condition called bruxism, may develop from stress or as part of a sleep disorder.

This can tire muscles and create painful spasms, causing even more pain. Repeated muscle problems may affect the joints, resulting in tissue damage, muscle tenderness, and more spasm, perpetuating a cycle of pain.
