What causes Jaw conditions?

Article excerpts about the causes of Jaw conditions:
Severe injury to the jaw or TMJ can cause TMD. For example, a heavy blow can fracture the bones associated with the joint, or damage the disc. This may result in a disruption of smooth jaw motion causing pain or locking of the jaw during movement. Other causes of TMD are less clear. A poor bit (malocclusion) orthodontic treatment, jaw clenching, teeth grinding, as well as physical and mental stress have all been linked to TMD. Unfortunately, their roles as definite causes have not yet been determined. (Source: excerpt from TMD-TMJ (Jaw Disorders): NWHIC)
