TMJ or jaw joint injuries are just some of the more serious injuries that victims of car accidents experience. TMJ is short for "temporomandibular joint". The temporomandibular joint connects the lower jaw, called the mandible, to the temporal bone at the side of the head. The temporomandibular is the most regularly used and complex joints in your body. The TMJ is injured by direct impact, such as when an airbag deploys and strikes the victims face, or the thrust of a “whiplash” type injury, including when the victims head hits the seat rest. Symptoms that point to a serious TMJ injury include a clicking sound when opening or closing your mouth, locking of your jaw, difficulty or discomfort while chewing or biting, pain in neck, shoulders and back, hearing problems and dizziness.
