Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, Are You Biting off More Than You Can Chew? 

Those Super sized burgers and sandwiches that are sold regularly at fast food restaurants may be too big to eat. Many of them are often made larger than the human mouth. They are forcing many people to take bites too big to chew. The Academy of General Dentistry states that doing this can harm your jaw and teeth. People at particular risk are those that have a temporomandibular joint disorder. (known as TMJ) TMJ can restrict the range of acceptable bite sizes. People with TMJ should avoid opening their mouths too wide since taking large bites of food can aggravate the condition.
