Symptoms of TMJ

The term TMJ stands for temporomandibular joints, and it refers to the area around your jaw. If these joints and muscles become inflamed, the condition is called temporomandibular dysfunction, or TMD. Here are a few signs you may suffer from TMD disorder:

  • Facial pain, especially located near your jaw
  • Dizziness
  • Intense headaches
  • Sensitivity to light and eye pain
  • Ear problems, including severe pain and hearing loss
  • Popping sound when opening your mouth

There is no single cause for TMD. Car accidents, injuries and excessive stress can all play a part in triggering the disorder. If you’re not sure whether your facial pain is related to TMD or another health problem, our specialists can put you at ease by identifying the underlying cause.
