Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD)
Temporomandibular disorders  (TMD) include noises (clicking or crunchy sounds) in one or both jaw joints, discomfort in the face and chewing muscle areas, limited movement of the lower jaw, clenching and/or grinding of the teeth when asleep and/or when awake, and tightness of the chewing muscles upon awakening from sleep or even during the day and/or evening.  As with sleep disorders, one's quality of life can be greatly affected by TMD.
