Your TMJ, or your temporomandibular joint, may be susceptible to temporomandibular disorders, or TMD. When your jaw joints are out of place, you can experience pain and other problems as a result. Over time the stress a bite problem puts on your jaw may lead to muscle and jaw joint pain as well as headaches, ringing in your ears, and worn, broken, or loose teeth.
