Your Temporomandibular joint located in the jaw can often be an area in the face that can cause issues with patients leading to what is called Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD). TMJ pain is when you feel pain in your jaw joint and the surrounding muscles. The exact cause of TMJ pain is hard to determine but is often due to a combination of problems like arthritis and jaw injuries. TMJ conditions occur as a result of problems with the jaw, jaw joint and surrounding facial muscles that control chewing and moving of the jaw. People who frequently clench or grind their jaw and teeth commonly have pain but do not always develop TMJ syndrome.
