What Is TMJ Disorder?

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jaw to your skull. This joint functions as a sliding hinge, allowing your mouth to open, close, and move side to side. When the joint isn’t functioning correctly, it can result in TMJ disorders (TMD).

TMD can create pain in your jaw and surrounding muscles, which can be caused by stress or other factors, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Injury
  • Genetics
  • Teeth grinding
  • Teeth clenching
