TMJ is an abbreviation for temperomandibular joint. The jaw joint is right in front of the ear. You can feel it with your fingers when you open or close your mouth. When you have pain, clicking or inability to move your jaw, you have temperomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMD. It is estimated that between 10% and 20% of the population suffer from TMD, at some time in their lives.
