What is TMD?

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) is a disorder of the jaw joints that can cause various painful and uncomfortable symptoms.

It occurs when there are issues with the temporomandibular joint (or TMJ), such as misalignment of the teeth or jaw, airway issues or trauma. If you have TMD, your dentist will provide you with a treatment plan to relieve your symptoms and address the causes.
