What Is TMJ?
TMD (temporomandibular disorders), also referred to as TMJ, is characterized by significant pain in the jaw and limitation in jaw joint movement. TMJ can affect basic oral functions including swallowing, chewing, talking, and, in some cases, even breathing.
The symptoms commonly associated with TMJ include recurrent facial pain and sensitivity, swelling, constant teeth grinding, and jaw joint locking causing limited range of motion in the jaw.
Symptoms vary, but generally can include:
- Pain and tenderness around the jaw, ears, cheeks and neck
- Stiffness in the jaw
- Pain while yawning
- Pain while chewing
- Locking of the jaw
- Uncontrolled change of facial expression
- Changes in teeth alignment and bite
