Please tell me is painful jaw symptom of TMD. What causes TMD? My good friend had few months ago accident in which he injured jaw, teeth and had head trauma. He is much better now but he‘s jaw is still painful. I am worried about him because he refuses to check that. I appreciate any information.

Severe injury to the jaw can cause TMD. For example, a heavy blow can fracture the bones associated with the joint, or damage the disc, this may result in a disruption of smooth jaw motion causing pain or locking of the jaw during movement. Other causes are less clear. That jaw injury that he had is most possible reason. I strongly advise you to make him go to examine the jaw.
