Temporomandibular (TMJ / TMD) related issues can be jaw-droppingly painful, and can put a stopper on living a comfortable, social and happy life.

Temporomandibular Disorders can trigger pain in a variety of areas, not just the jaw – and it’s a common mistake for those suffering from TMJ to identify the pain as a sinus problem. With that said, many people go through countless over the counter remedies to absolutely no avail! It’s important to get the right treatment… and most times, a surgical diagnosis is the best way to move forward and find the right solution in coping with your pain. To make things easier for you, here are a few common symptoms to look out for:

  • Pain in or around the jaw and chewing muscles
  • Pain in the jaw, neck or face
  • Stiff jaw muscles or restricted movement
  • Clicking, popping and or lockjaw
  • Grating on the jaw joint
  • Pain in the cheeks, ear or head
