What Is Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)?
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) is a term used to describe a group of painful and uncomfortable conditions related to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This joint works like a hinge, connecting the mandible, or lower jaw, to the temporal bone located on the side of the head. The TMJ is the reason the jaw can move up and down and side to side, allowing us to chew, talk and make facial expressions. TMD, which is also known as temporomandibular joint syndrome, is characterized by pain to the jaw, head, ears, neck or shoulders.
At Carletti Dentistry and Associates, TMD is a common sight for our neuromuscular dentists. We are often working with patients to ease their TMJ symptoms.
