Why does your jaw hurt?
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction is a set of disorders affecting the temporomandibular joint and/or the surrounding musculature.
These disorders cause pain and dysfunction in the joint and the muscles controlling jaw movement. A thorough examination, including functional testing, is required for proper diagnosis.
TMJ disorders may present as one or more of the following conditions::
- Jaw pain or pain in the chewing muscles
- Popping, clicking, or grinding with jaw movement
- Aberrant movement or tracking when opening and/or closing the mouth
