Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is a group of disorders that affect the jaw joints and can limit a person's ability to chew, swallow, drink, and even breathe. TMD is a complex condition considering the complexity of the jaw itself as well as the variety in which the condition presents in various patients. Symptoms range from ringing in the ears to limited jaw movements. If you are experiencing jaw muscle stiffness, limited jaw movement, painful clicking or popping in the joint, or chronic headaches, it might be time to visit your health care provider.
