This article summarizes the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In particular, TMJ-RAs are collected in a short summary by examining every aspect of RA; the treatment of TMJ-RA is also briefly mentioned. TMJ-RA is usually characterized by bilateral pain, tenderness and swelling, and limitation of jaw movements. Due to these symptoms, patients may experience limitations in their daily activities, such as eating, speaking, and swallowing. MEDLINE and Scopus databases were searched electronically using the terms “temporomandibular joint” and “rheumatoid arthritis.” The electronic search includes articles or books published in English and December 2017. A search of the reference lists of selected articles was also carried out.
