Jaw Joint Disorders

What is TMJ?

 

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects the jaw to the temporal bones of the skull. Occurs when there are problems with the muscles and jaws in the face. When this joint is injured or damaged, it can lead to a localized pain disorder called temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome. Causes of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome include injury to the teeth or jaw, misalignment of the teeth or jaw, teeth grinding, poor posture, stress, arthritis, and gum chewing.
