The temporomandibular joints are actually responsible for attaching your lower jaw to your skull, allowing you to properly open your mouth, bite, chew, eat and even speak. When a patient experiences a temporomandibular joint disorder, it can often cause discomfort and issues using the jaw properly. Some patients even experience unconscious clenching and grinding which can lead to severe damage of the smile.
