TMJ stands for your temporomandibular joint. Your temporomandibular joints are the jaw joints that connect your lower jaw bone to your skull. Sometimes overuse of these joints when you speak, chew, swallow and yawn can lead to TMD, or temporomandibular disorder. TMD is very painful and hard to live with.
