TMJ is short for temporomandibular joint. You have two of these joints, which allow you to move your lower jaw. When there is a problem, you may not be able to move them as well as you should. If teeth grinding is a factor in your condition, it can damage your enamel and increase your risk of gum disease and tooth infections.
TMJ disorders affect more than 10 million Americans. Anyone can develop this condition, although women are more likely to experience this than men.
