The temporomandibular joint connects your jawbone to your skull, acting like a sliding hinge.
TMJ Dysfunction can cause pain in your jaw or in the muscles that control your jaw.
TMJ Dysfunction is most commonly caused by the joint’s cartilage being damaged by arthritis, improper alignment of the jaw, or by impact to the jaw.
