The jaw joint is a unique joint in the human body in terms of mobility and diversity of function. No other joint in the body has the ability to move in as many different directions as the jaw joint. The movement of this joint, which has the ability to move in so many directions, is guided by the closing of the teeth and the jaw muscles.
