What Causes Jaw Locking?
When your upper and lower jaws do not match up, the misalignment can cause stress on your muscles and joints, leading to a locked jaw. The locking of the jaw, which is characterized by an inability to fully open your mouth, can be disconcerting and even painful. Often, this condition is the byproduct of a temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), and it can be effectively treated with the use of neuromuscular dentistry.
Jaw locking is a problem for many of our neuromuscular dentistry patients. Issues with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in particular can prompt this condition.
