The Temporomandibular joint is the hinge-joint that connects the jaw to the skull. It is located just in front of the ear on each side of the head. These joints are very flexible, allowing the mouth to open and close and move side-to-side smoothly during talking, chewing and yawning. There are several muscles attached to and surrounding the temporomandibular joint which control the joint's position and movement.
Problems with the temporomandibular joint commonly result in pain, difficulty chewing and eating and difficulty opening/closing the mouth. Often, these disorders are incorrectly called TMJ, for temporomandibular joint.
