See TMJ expert. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals.

In brief: See doctor/dentist

The jaw joint can be affected by a variety of conditions such as inflammation with rheumatoid arthritis, degeneration of the jaw cartilage disc with osteoarthritis, or other mechanical problems as in TMJ (temporomandibular joint) syndrome.
I would start by seeing your dentist. If you were to see a doctor, i would see an ENT specialist.
