Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders (often referred to as TMJ), encompass a range of conditions of the jaw muscles and jaw joints. These jaw disorders often result in feelings of pain and discomfort in and around the mouth and jaw areas. The jaw joint acts as a connector between the lower jaw and the bone located on the side of the head. To locate the jaw joint, simply place your fingers in front of your ears and open and close your mouth. There are muscles around the jaw joint that allow for position control and movement of the jaw bone. While TMJ conditions are often not considered serious problems, jaw pain can result in significant reduction in quality of life and can cause long-lasting symptoms.
