TMJ Related Disorders

The term “TMJ” is an abbreviation for the joint that attaches the lower jaw to the upper jaw, also known as the jaw joint. It is also a term used to describe a broad range of problems people can have when the jaw joints are not functioning properly. These problems can involve pain to the head, neck and face, chewing problems, bite problems and facial profile distortion. Though there are multiple reasons for this, one such reason that should always be properly investigated is a problem directly related to the TMJs.
