Let’s Celebrate TMJ Awareness Month!

With Thanksgiving, November is the month that seems to kick off the holiday season. Aside from this popular holiday, there is another occasion this month that we want to share information about: TMJ Awareness Month. This month is dedicated to helping people learn more about TMJ and TMD. If you are unfamiliar, TMJ stands for the temporomandibular joint, which is the ball and socket joint that attaches the lower jaw to the base of the skull. If you place your fingers on the back of your jaw near your ear and open your mouth, you can feel the temporomandibular joint move. You may also hear the term TMD, which refers to temporomandibular joint disorder. People often use TMJ and TMD interchangeably to refer to the same condition.

You may also be familiar with the term, TMJ, which stands for the temporomandibular joint. This joint is the hinge that attaches your jaw to your skull, and if it becomes misaligned, it can lead to discomfort and leave lasting effects.
