What is TMJ/TMD?

TMJ is short for the temporomandibular joint and connects your lower jaw to your skull. TMJ disorders (TMD) develop for a variety of reasons, including jaw injuries, grinding/clenching your teeth, arthritis, and more, and can be resolved with a variety of treatment options. TMD occurs when the muscle ligaments are torn or worn and the cushion of the jaw joint becomes misaligned and out of place.

Symptoms of TMJ/TMD

While TMJ disorder can show itself in a variety of ways, here are some of the common symptoms associated with it:

  • Pain in the face, ear, jaw, and mouth
  • Pain in one or both temporomandibular joints
  • Difficulty chewing and swallowing

  • Headaches
  • Neck pain

Besides the symptoms listed above continuing to persist, there are some additional effects from letting TMJ go untreated:
