Understanding TMJ Disorders

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jawbone to your skull, acting as a sliding hinge. Disorders in this joint can cause pain in your jaw and the muscles that control jaw movement. Symptoms often include pain while chewing, difficulty moving the jaw, and a clicking or locking jaw. These issues can arise from various factors, including arthritis, jaw injury, or excessive muscle tension. Understanding the underlying causes of TMJ disorders is essential for effective treatment.
