The TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) Association, Ltd., is a national, non-profit, voluntary organization that promotes awareness of temporomandibular joint disorders and provides information and support for people with TMJ disorders and their families through the development of a national network of members. The mission of the TMJ Association is to improve the care and treatment of those affected by TMJ diseases/disorders through fostering research and education, with the ultimate aim of preventing these craniofacial problems. In addition, the association promotes research into the causes of TMJ and the development of safe and effective treatments. Established in 1986, the association has provided testimony to a special National Institute of Dental Research panel and played an instrumental role in NIH’s utilization of a multi-institute approach to basic research of temporomandibular joint disorders. Additional testimony before the Senate Appropriations Committee played a vital role in the creation of an intensive educational program for medical professionals and the public, and the stimulation of controlled scientific research into the nature of the disorder. In addition, the association was instrumental in notifying the national media about the Vitek implant recall and creating a TMJ implant registry. The association publishes a quarterly newsletter that keeps readers updated on current research and medical, legal, legislative, and insurance issues; the newsletter also provides a forum for sharing ideas and asking questions. In addition, the TMJ Association provides informational brochures and pamphlets.
