Can tmjd (via long-term night and day bruxism) contribute to / cause intermittent non-painful paresthesia in the (one side - left in my case) jawline?
Very unlikely: While not impossible, i think it would be extremely unlikely. Your symptoms could be related to a dental or a medical problem, or perhaps both.
