  • TMJ Disorders

    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?
