What is a TMJ and a TMD?

TMJ stands for ‘temporomandibular joints’. Your temporomandibular joints connect your jawbone to your skull. They are the joints that allow you to move your mouth and are a necessary component to your overall oral health. Sometimes when these joints become overused, they can cause a temporomandibular disorder or TMD. TMDs are very painful and hard to live with.

If you are experiencing the following symptoms, it may be a sign that you are suffering from a TMD:

  • Intense jaw pain
  • A stuffy feeling in the ears
  • Frequent headaches
  • Neck aches
  • A clicking or popping sound when the jaw move
  • Face swelling
  • Muscle spasms
  • A change in the alignment of top and bottom teeth
  • Locked jaw or a limited opening of the mouth
