Frequently Asked Questions About Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

What is TMJ?
TMJ disorder is a condition in which the temporomandibular joints have become dysfunctional. The temporomandibular joints are the joints at the back of your jaw, on each side. This pair of temporomandibular joints, or TMJs, is what facilitates the broad range of movements capable of the jaw. While TMJ is technically the term for these joints, it is also often used to describe TMJ disorder (TMJD).

TMJ disorder is a condition in which the temporomandibular joints have become dysfunctional. When overstressed joints, ligaments, and muscles stop working together, they can lead to the following:

  • jaw pain
  • facial and neck soreness
  • chronic headaches and migraines
  • uncomfortable clicking when the jaw moves
  • limited jaw movement and, in some cases, total immobility, called lockjaw
