Weston’s First Dental Practice Explains the Signs You May Have TMJ
TMJ is a disorder that can cause pain in the muscles and joints around the jaw. In the majority of cases, the pain can be relieved through a combination of nonsurgical treatment and self-managed care.
Here are a few common symptoms of TMJ to look for:
- Difficulty opening or closing your mouth due to the locking of your jaw
- Pain in your jaw
- Discomfort from chewing
- Facial pain
- Pain in and around your ears
- Clicking when opening and closing your mouth
- Inability to open or close you mouth completely
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms you should seek medical evaluation from a Dentist or TMJ specialist.
