What is TMJ disorder?

Temporomandibular disorder, also known as TMD, includes pain in the jaw joint or limited jaw movement. When a patient experiences TMD, the TMJ that acts as a sliding hinge that connects the jawbone to the skull becomes impacted. TMJ can be caused by trauma, wear and tear from teeth grinding, or natural conditions. TMJ disorder can cause discomfort and interfere with everyday activities like talking, chewing, or smiling.
