Question wisdom tooth and TMJ

Would impacted wisdom tooth cause TMJ related symptoms?

Wisdom teeth as explained to me by my "TMJD Dentist" can cause a whole wack of problems. I am not sure if it can cause TMJD related symtoms, but I am sure there are many nerve endings around that area.

Your body is made up of all these nerves that can run from head to toe, with your brain being a "Fuse Panel". A problem around one of these nerves can cause a problem anywhere along the way.. it's quite amazing actually.

My dentist told me that Wisdom Teeth should never come out, UNLESS they are causing problems. Some people's jaw has shifted because they had their wisodm teeth taken out, and in turn developed TMJD or worsened their condition.

In my case, I am getting all 4 taken out as one if servely impacted (ironically, on the side of my ear problems) and the rest are impacted as well...
The search for a diagnosis is long and painful...

hey antares

i have impacted wisdom teeth too. apparently they may be causing most of my dizziness and cognative problems. unfortunatly, i have to wait for about 3 months before i can get them out.
i would imagine that impacted teeth would cause or excellerate TMJd problems. they shift your bite and don't allow your jaw to open and close properly.
good luck and good health
