Having Jaw Pain? What You Need to Know About TMD

What is TMJ/TMD?
Having jaw pain and muscle aches in your face can be associated with temporomandibular disorders (TMD), also known as TMJ after the temporomandibular joint. This joint connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull located in front of each ear, allowing your jaw to move up and down and side to side, so you can talk, chew, and yawn.
