TMJ Disorder (also known as TMJD and TMD) is a general term that applies to various acute and chronic inflammatory conditions that affect the joint where the jaw and skull connect.

Symptoms vary from mild to severe.  If you experience any of the following, it could be related to TMJ Disorder.  Symptoms can include:

  • Difficulty or discomfort when biting or chewing.
  • Difficulty opening or closing your mouth.
  • Jaw pain.
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds when opening or closing your mouth.
  • Aches, including earache, headache (especially migraines), or a dull, facial ache.
  • Neck and shoulder pain.
  • Tinnitus (ringing of the ears).

In some cases, temporomandibular joint pain can be so bad that discomfort is constant, even without moving the jaw.  To learn more, contact Creating Stellar Smiles today.

Whatever is causing your TMJ Disorder symptoms, isn’t it time you took your life back from the misery of constant pain and discomfort?
