TMJD stands for temporomandibular joint disorder. The TMJ joint works as a hinge between your jawbone and skull. When suffering from TMJD, this joint experiences pain on one or both sides of the jawbone in this joint and its muscles that control the jaw’s movement.

The hinge action of the TMJ uses sliding motions to move back and forth. The bones that work alongside this joint are covered with cartilage. They are also separated by an absorbing disk. This disk absorbs shock and helps to keep the joint’s movement smooth! When the joint, cartilage, or disk becomes damage, significant pain can occur.

Causes and Symptoms of TMJD

According to Dr. Jones, TMJD disorders happen when the absorbing disk erodes or becomes misaligned. It can also happen when the joint becomes injured. Arthritis is another common cause of TMJD.

The Mayo Clinic outlines symptoms of TMJD as:

  • Pain or tenderness in the jaw
  • Aching facial pain
  • Difficulty opening or closing the mouth
  • Lock jaw
  • Aching pain around or in the ear
  • Trouble or pain when chewing
  • Neck pain
  • Clicking while chewing
  • Grating sensation when opening the mouth
