Temporo-Mandibular Joint, TMJ disorders, include a variety of problems related to the jaw joint and the surrounding area. You may have had a TMJ disorder for a long time without realizing it. Symptoms such as headaches, teeth clenching, earaches or swallowing difficulties may be signaling a TMJ disorder.
If you answer 'yes' to several of the following questions, you may have a TMJ disorder:
Does your jaw click, pop, grate, catch or lock when opening or closing your mouth?
Is opening your mouth painful or limited?
Do you awaken with sore, stiff muscles around your jaw?
Are you aware of grinding or clenching your teeth during the day or at night?
Does stress make your clenching or pain worse?
