Question Marlene- what caused your tmjd?

Hi Marlene,

I have one more question to ask you. Do you know what actually caused your tmjd in the first place?

Any input would be appreciate.

Thank you in advance and have a nice evening!

Hi Sandi,

For the most part, my TMJ was caused by "Mother Nature" - my jaw structure was too small for the number of teeth I had. It also didn't help that I had 2 permanent teeth extracted, in an effort to correct some crowding, at around age 10.
My TMJ dentist told me that my TMJ had been "brewing" for about 25 years!

You had your teeth pulled out at age 10! No wonder you had problems with your jaw. I read somewhere on the net that when patients get their wisdom or other teeth out for whatever reason for, they may end up having their bite changed from it, or other problems come up as a result of it.

Thanks for answering me.
