TMJ

What is TMJ?

The temporomandibular joint, also known as TMJ, is the ball and socket joint that connects the lower jaw to the bone on each side of the head. The temporomandibular joint is stabilized by muscles that make it possible to open and close the mouth when you eat, drink, cough, talk and yawn to name a few.
