E. Depression psychosis



The correct answer is E. Depression psychosis.

Depression psychosis is a condition which may worsen with the presence of TMJ dysfunction.

Several studies suggest that the presence of depression is a common condition among people experiencing chronic pain, especially TMD.

People most prone to TMJ possess a malocclusion. Other factors that cause TMJ disease include grinding teeth during sleep (bruxism), having an overbite, and rheumatoid arthritis.
