Myogenous TMD and Arthrogenous TMD

MYOGENOUS TMD (muscle related) usually results from overwork, fatigue or tension of the jaw and supporting muscles resulting in jaw ache, headache and sometimes neckache.

ABNORMAL TMJ - ANTERIORLY DISPLACED DISC

ARTHROGENOUS TMD (joint related) usually results from inflammation, disease or degeneration of the hard or soft tissues within the TMJ.  Capsulitis and synovitis (inflammation), disc dislocation (also called internal derangement) and degenerative arthritis are the most common arthrogenous disorders of the TMJ.
