What is the GENTLE Temporomandibular Joint?

The temporomandibular joint is a crucial joint that forms at the intersection of the lower jawbone and the skull bone in front of the ear. It plays a pivotal role in various actions, such as opening or closing the mouth, moving the jaw side-to-side and forward, and when chewing food.

The temporomandibular joint is comprised of the musculoskeletal system, including the lower jawbone, skull, joint discs that lie between them, ligaments, and surrounding muscles

Doctor’s Guide

If temporomandibular joint disorder is left untreated, it can lead to conditions like osteoarthritis, create unsettling noises in the jaw similar to grinding sand or pebbles, and induce pain. As osteoarthritis progresses, it can alter the lengths of the left and right jaws, causing facial asymmetry.

In particular, for growing children, it’s crucial to treat osteoarthritis as the growth point of the jawbone occurs within the joint area.
