What is TMJ?

TMJ

The TMJ is the actual joint that connects your skull (temporal bone) to your lower jawbone (mandible). You have two TMJs on either side of your head located just in front of your ear canal. If you place your fingers next to your ear and open and close your jaw you can feel the joint rotating and occasionally popping.
