Signs You May Have TMJ from Weston’s First Dental Practice

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:

  1. Difficulty opening or closing your mouth due to the locking of your jaw
  2. Pain in your jaw
  3. Discomfort from chewing
  4. Facial pain
  5. Pain in and around your ears
  6. Clicking when opening and closing your mouth
  7. 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.
