TMJ / Jaw

What is the TMJ?

TMJ stands for temporo-mandibular joint. It is located on either side of your face, in front of your ears connecting your jaw to your head. It allows you to speak, chew, swallow and yawn without pain or limitations. Unfortunately, many problems can occur at these joints. We refer to these problems as TMJ disorders. The most common symptom of TMJ disorders is pain in your jaw, face and around your ear when you eat, talk or open your mouth. Ranging from mild to severe, this pain can be sudden or build up slowly over time.

Other symptoms may include:
