Jaw pain is never normal and it rarely goes away on its own.
Your temporomandibular joints are located on both sides of your face, just in front of your ears. The TMJs connect your lower jawbone to your skull and assist in movements like chewing and speaking. TMJ dysfunction occurs when the muscles and ligaments around your jaw joints become inflamed or irritated resulting in temporomandibular disorder. This condition may be acute or chronic, and the resulting pain may be mild or severe.
TMJ disorder can be caused by conditions like Bruxism (Teeth grinding/clenching), Stress, Trauma or an incorrect bite.
