TMJ Evaluation

What is TMJ?

TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint. This is the joint where the condylar head of the mandible (lower jaw) articulates with the base of the skull. The joint space itself is called the glenoid fossa. This joint is named for its anatomical location and as you may know is extremely important in opening your mouth, chewing, and lower lateral jaw movement.
