What Is TMD?

TMD, or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, refers to a group of conditions affecting the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which connects the jaw to the skull. These conditions can lead to discomfort, limited jaw movement, and other challenges in daily life. It’s a complex disorder that often requires professional assessment and care to manage effectively.

Symptoms of TMJ Disorder

TMJ Disorder can manifest in various ways, with symptoms that might include:

  • Jaw pain or tenderness
  • Difficulty or discomfort while chewing
  • Clicking or popping sounds in the jaw joint
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Earaches or ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Locked jaw or restricted jaw movement
  • Facial pain and discomfort

These symptoms may come and go or become chronic, impacting daily activities like eating, speaking, and even sleeping.
