I would just like to take a moment of your time to ask about a condition known as Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD). This is also frequently called TMJ. For the remainder of this post, I will use TMJ.
For those who do not know what this is, you can find some information at WebMD, or the TL;DR version is basically mouth and jaw issues like locking, popping, bad side to side and up and down movement, and painful chewing. Why is this important or why should you care? I know of at least one person who got it from pacifier use as a teen/adult.
What I want to know is, have any of you heard about something like this happening, and should we as a community be more aware of this disorder and perhaps take measures against developing this?
Thank you for your attention today.
