What Could TMJ Be?

Posted by Dr. Alicia Abeyta DDS FAGD on Jul 5 2016, 10:34 AM

Temporomandibular joint disorders are a common condition that can cause jaw pain, popping or clicking sounds when opening and closing the mouth, and headaches.

The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is a hinge that connects the jaw to the skull. The TMJ allows your jaw to move up and down and side to side in order to chew, speak, and yawn. In some cases, the TMJ can become damaged due to trauma, arthritis, or stress. Many people who experience TMJ disorders also suffer from anxiety and depression.
