What is TMJ?

TMD (temporomandibular disorders), most commonly referred to as TMJ, is characterized by significant pain in the jaw and limitation in jaw joint movement. This disorder can affect chewing, talking, and swallowing. In some cases, it can even disrupt breathing.

There are several symptoms that are associated with TMJ, including recurrent facial pain, swelling, constant teeth grinding, facial sensitivity, jaw joint locking, and a limited range of motion in the jaw.

TMJ symptoms vary, but generally can include:

  • Headaches
  • Pain and tenderness around the jaw, ears, cheeks and neck
  • Migraines
  • Stiffness in the jaw
  • Earaches
  • Painful chewing
  • Pain while yawning
  • Locking of the jaw
  • Uncontrolled change of facial expression
  • Changes in how the upper and lower teeth fit together

If you are experiencing significant jaw pain or discomfort, our team will perform a thorough exam and determine a correct diagnosis.
