The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a specialized joint that connects the jawbone (mandible) to the skull’s temporal bone, which is located in front of the ear. It plays a crucial role in enabling various jaw movements, such as talking, chewing, and yawning. The TMJ is a complex joint that combines both hinge-like and sliding motions to facilitate these movements.
