Temporal Mandibular Jaw is a misalignment of the jaw that
can cause a person to grind or clench their teeth involuntarily. Sometimes the
symptoms of TMJ go away, without any treatment. In some cases a mouth guard to
prevent tooth damage can be worn at night. In some cases a shot of cortisol in
the joint can alleviate the pain associated with TMJ.
