What is TMJ?
TMJ refers to the joint and muscles that connect the lower jaw to the skull just under your ear. The TMJ is comprised of muscles, blood supplies, nerves and bones, and we each have two (one on each side). The TMJ is one of your most used joints, you use it to swallow, chew, talk, and even make facial expressions. TMJ diseases and disorders sometimes referred to as just “TMJ” can be characterized as pain in the jaw as well as restrictions on jaw mobility. A thorough evaluation including medical history, description of symptoms, and a physical examination are required to properly diagnosis the specific TMJ problem.
