About Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ)

TMJ, or the temporomandibular joint, is the joint that connects the mandible, or lower jaw, to the skull. It is located in front of the ears on both sides of the head and enables the jaw to open and close, allowing us to eat and speak.

A problem called temporomandibular joint dysfunction or TMD is the most common cause of jaw pain and is estimated to affect nearly 10 million people in the United States alone.

There are various TMJ disorders. But in many cases, it is not known what causes them. It is believed that trauma to the joint or to the jaw, structural jaw issues present at birth, habitual clenching or grinding of the teeth, arthritis and erosion of the joint,  poor sleep, prolonged stress, using orthodontic braces, a poor posture can play a role.
