TMJ is the abbreviation for the temporomandibular joint. This joint connects your skull and jaw and enables your jaw to move. TMD is a disorder with this joint, which causes pain, headaches and difficulty opening and closing your mouth.
Many people don’t realize that their migraines, neck pain or jaw pain is actually caused by their TMJ. If you are experiencing jaw pain, jaw clicking or headaches, give us a call so that I can help diagnose if your symptoms are related to TMD.
