November is TMJ Awareness Month, which is a time dedicated to helping make more people familiar with TMJ and TMD. If you don’t know, TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, which is the ball and socket joint that attaches the lower jaw to the base of the skull. If you place your fingers on the back of your jaw near your ear and open your mouth, you can feel the temporomandibular joint move. At Center for TMJ & Sleep Solutions NW, we are happy to provide life-changing treatment to patients who are suffering from TMD. TMD stands for temporomandibular joint disorder, which describes the symptoms resulting from conditions that affect the TMJ.
