What is TMJ Disorder or TMD?
This is a disorder about the articular discs that cover the condyles (top of the jaw bone). When the above symptoms present, the disc is usually displaced and no longer protecting the condyles when a person opens or closes his or her mouth. These little dics are critical in helping a person avoid pain or discomfort in the jaw joint area and in turn the rest of the body. This is the month to pass the word along and help rectify a poorly understood condition.
