What Is TMJ?

TMJ refers to TMJ disorder. The TMJ is short for the temporomandibular joint, the joint that connects your jaws to your skull. The cause of TMJ disorder isn’t always known, but it’s often related to jaw or head injury, stress, arthritis, or a bad bite.

Common TMJ Symptoms

TMJ disorders have symptoms that range from bothersome to painful. Here are a few symptoms you should be aware of:

  • Jaw Pain
  • “Tired” Jaw
  • Facial Swelling
  • Painful Bite
  • Teeth Grinding, or Bruxism
  • Lockjaw
  • Migraines and Headaches

Can TMJ Cause Migraines?

The muscles in your TMJ extend up into your temple region. This means any issues with your TMJ can have a dramatic effect on this area and can even lead to migraine symptoms.
