The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jawbone to your skull and is like a sliding hinge that allows you to open and close your mouth.

TMJ disorders may be referred to as a temporomandibular disorder (TMD) or a  temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD).

If you experience pain in your jaw, have restricted jaw movements or experience noises during jaw movement from the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), you likely have a temporomandibular disorder (TMD). Constant headaches and even migraines can be caused by TMDs.

Although a TMD is not life-threatening, it can be detrimental to your quality of life, because the symptoms can become chronic and difficult to manage.
