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.
