What are TMJ Injuries? TMJ is known as Temporomandibular joint dysfunction and is also abbreviated as TMD or TMJD. TMD refers to a dysfunction and associated pain of the jaw muscles which connect the mandible to the skull. Injury to your jaw, the joint, or the muscles of your head and neck — like from a heavy blow or whiplash — can lead to TMD. TMJ can result in pain, restricted mandible (jaw) movement and noises from the temporomandibular joints (TAJ) during jaw movement.

If you have suffered TMJ as the result of a motor vehicle accident, you should tell your doctor about this problem immediately and see your dentist who can refer you to a specialist to confirm the diagnosis. TMJ is a major injury and can cause lifelong problems.
