Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is located in the jaw and is often an area that causes issues and leads patients to a condition called Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD). When you feel pain in your jaw joint, this is referred to as TMJ pain. Jaw injuries can be the exact cause of TMJ pain, but other times, it is hard to pinpoint what causes this pain.
Some common causes include:
- People who frequently clinch or grind their jaw and teeth
- Jaw injuries
- Injuries to surrounding facial muscles that control chewing and moving of the jaw
