Do TMJ Disorders Cause Teeth to Shift?

Jaw pain, aching facial pain, popping or clicking noises and difficulty opening and closing the mouth are all symptoms of a Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Also, TMJ has also been linked to a lesser-known symptom – shifting of teeth. Here’s what you need to know.

Key takeaways:

–  Some people experience teeth grinding as a result of a TMJ disorder which in turn causes teeth to shift. Others develop TMJ disorders due to bruxism and if left untreated may cause gaps in your teeth.

–  It’s perfectly normal for teeth to slightly shift over your lifetime. However, severe TMJ disorders can cause accelerated misalignments leading to crooked teeth and bigger gaps which could greatly affect the appearance of your smile.

–  TMJ disorders are normally caused by stress, anxiety, poor posture, arthritis, bruxism and a misaligned bite. Identifying the root cause of your TMJ disorder will help you and your dentist determine the best treatment options for you.

If you’re experiencing symptoms of either bruxism or TMJ such as jaw pain or ear pain, it’s time to seek a consultation with your dentist.
