TMJ Disorders & Treatment NewmarketTMJ is an abreviation for temporomandibular joints.  The TMJ connects the mandible (lower jaw) to the bottom of the skull. The lower jaw and the skull are connected by a variety of muscles and ligaments, which work together seamlessly when the lower jaw is in the correct position. The head of the lower jaw bone is called a condyle.  The condyle it fits into a sort of socket of the temporal bone called the glenoid fossa.  These are separated by an articular disc. The two bones of the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are held together by a number of ligaments.

There is a piece of cartilage known as an articular disc and it acts as a cushion and friction absorber between the two bones.  This disc is attached by msucle and moves readily with the movement of the TMJ.
