The temporo-mandible joint commonly called jaw,

is what connects the mandible to the temporal (cranial) bone. According to studies, the pain triggered by this joint afflicts 30 to 50% of the adult population at any point in their lives. The ethiopathology is triggered by many factors but is mainly related to uncoordinated or overstressed muscular tension that is responsible for lesions of the ligaments and the capillaries as well as those of disks and muscles. Quite often, the pain comes with specific cracking sounds.
