Jaw Pain

Because TMJ is a dysfunction of the jaw joint,  jaw pain is a very common symptom.   A "bad bite " in which your upper and lower teeth do not come together in proper alignment also disrupts the placement of the jaw and the surrounding muscles.  This imbalance in the bite-jaw-muscle relationship is what causes the pain in the jaw.   Pressure and forces on the teeth can cause bone to dissolve or extra boney projections to be built up.
