Do you find yourself experiencing frequent discomfort in your jaw and face when you open your mouth or chew? Or do you find that you are waking frequently with unexplained headaches? If either of these scenarios is something you regularly experience, you may be suffering from a common condition known as temporomandibular joint disorder, also called TMD. You may also be familiar with the term TMJ, which stands for the temporomandibular joint. TMD is a chronic degenerative condition that affects the temporomandibular joints, which are the joints located on either side of the head that connect the jaw to the skull. The effects of TMD can significantly affect your quality of life.
