No. Torn cartilage, bony degeneration, cervical issues, neurologic issues, Lymes disease and many other inputs can also cause muscular spasms and pain in the TMD patient. The more a practitioner looks into this with objective tools such as T-Scan, EMG, JVA, CBCT and MRI, the more likely they will find out why and if their patents pain(s) is (are) due to an occlusally (bite) based muscular TMD issue, or not.
