Teeth grinders, jaw clenchers and overzealous yawners can develop TMJ. If you prop up your head by resting your jaw in one or both palms, or if you frequently cradle a telephone between your head and shoulder, you increase the odds of getting the disorder. Gum chewing, teeth licking, fingernail biting, stress, poor posture and trauma are other common causes. Degenerative joint disease, arthritis and severe trauma can lead to extreme cases of TMJ, and might require more aggressive treatment, including surgery. More
