Jaw disorders affect a person's ability to speak, eat, chew, smile, kiss and even breathe. We promote research, scientifically validated treatments, and vital coping skills.
My name is Jennifer and I have suffered from TMJ dysfunction since age ten when I was in a car accident. Like many patients who have chased after a cure for many years, I have undergone 18 jaw surgeries.
If not for the hard work and relentless dedication to research based solutions, we would continue to face a world of TMJ care that mimics the Wild Wild West. I am so thankful for the work of The TMJ Association to raise awareness on Capitol Hill, at the NIH, FDA, and other government agencies. The community of patients constantly seeking verified information on the subject of TMJ, go to the TMJA for comprehensive and credible research updates.
When I can't speak because I am in too much pain or my jaw is literally wired shut, the TMJ Association is my voice. If the TMJ Association wasn't fighting for us, who would?
It is the time of year that we give thanks and express our gratitude to those who, like the TMJ Association, work tirelessly on our behalf. Please join me in supporting the efforts of the TMJ Association. Changing the face of TMJ is not easy, but working together, we can make change happen.
