Symptoms of TMJ Disorders

Temporomandibular joint disorders, also known as TMJ or TMD disorders, are a category of disorders that affect the muscles and joints of the jaw. TMJ can cause tenderness and pain in parts of the head, neck, and shoulders. Symptoms do vary from person to person. If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may need to seek immediate TMD treatment:

TMJ TMD Treatment Mesa
  • Pain or tenderness of the jaw
  • Inability to comfortably open the mouth
  • Extreme tooth sensitivity
  • Uncomfortable or obtrusive clicking or popping of the jaw joint
  • Sudden or constant dizziness, earaches, or headaches
  • Head, neck, shoulder, or back pain

Causes of TMD Disorders

TMD/TMJ disorder is a complex disorder that presents uniquely from person to person. This condition may result from overuse of the jaw joint, misalignment of the jaw, or over-extension of the jaw. Because the cause of the problem can be different for each person, it’s important for a dental care professional to conduct a thorough examination. Once an examination is performed, a personalized TMD treatment plan can be developed to treat the symptoms as well as the root cause of the problem.
