Temporomandibular joint disorder—usually called TMJ or TMD, affects the joints that link your lower or mandibular jaw to the temporal bone of the skull. Want to know where these joints are? Place your fingertips on both sides of your face just in front of your ears. Now open and close your mouth a couple of times and you’ll feel these joints at work. When functioning properly, the temporomandibular joints allow you to open and close easily, so you can speak, eat, laugh and yawn.
