TMD can be just a nuisance — or it can be a life-altering problem. When it’s less severe, crunching down on a hard bit of food can shoot a bolt of pain through the jaw joint — unpleasant, to be sure, but not serious. With time and simple home care, the pain usually subsides.
But with severe TMD, simple tasks, such as eating or talking, can no longer be taken for granted. The pain can be incredibly debilitating.
