Jaw joint problems

Disorders affecting the temporomandibular joint (TMJ; jaw joint) are very common, they are one of the most common reasons for people to attend a maxillofacial clinic. It has been said that TMJ pain and disorders are to a maxillofacial surgeon what low back pain is to an orthopaedic surgeon: a common problem, often difficult to treat and not fully understood.
