TMJ has a number of symptoms. They can include difficulty swallowing, popping of the jaw, jaw pain and headaches. With the presence of these symptoms, you may be suffering from Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ).
TMJ occurs when there is a problem with the joint between your skull and jaw. Painful inflamation is usually the issue.
Our dentist can diagnose you and begin soothing the symptoms. TMJ is usually caused by grinding of the teeth, poor tooth alignment or a pre-existing joint condition like arthritis. Treatment ranges from pain relief to orthodontic re-alignment.
