Temperomandibular Joint (TMJ)

TMJ stands for Temperomandibular Joint—the joint that connects your jaw to your skull. Every single person with a normal jaw has a “TMJ.” TMJ syndrome is a pain in the jaw joint that can be caused by a variety of medical problems.

When their jaw is in pain, some people confuse the issue by saying “I have TMJ”, when what they actually have is something called TMD (Temperomandibular Dysfunction). Often it is your dentist who will diagnose you with TMD.

There are many different dysfunctions that involve the TMJ itself, the surrounding musculature, and the other surrounding joints. Depending on the individual, TMD symptoms may include:

  • pain at the jaw or near the ear
  • head and neck pain
  • Facial pain, ear pain  
  • popping, clicking, or locking of the jaw
  • difficulty eating hard foods
  • headaches
  • pain with laughing, yawning and eating

 Patients who present with any of these symptoms can benefit from TMD treatment.
