Watch it be explained below.
TMJD, or temporomandibular joint disorder, means that the
hinge connecting the upper and lower jaw isn't working properly.
This hinge is one of the most complex joints in the body, responsible for moving the lower jaw forward, backward and side-to-side. Any problem that prevents this complex system of muscles, ligaments, discs and bones from working as it should is called TMJD. Often, TMJD feels like your jaw is popping or clicking or even "getting stuck" for a moment. The exact cause of this misalignment is often impossible to determine. TMJD also causes migraines, neck ache, basic headaches, eye pain, ear discomfort, shoulder pain, and much more.
TMJ disorders have many signs and symptoms. It's often hard to know for sure if you have TMJD, because one or all of these symptoms can also be present for other problems. Your dentist or health practitioner can help make a proper diagnosis by conducting an examination.
