TMD and TMJ Symptoms and Signs

The most common symptoms of TMJ and TMD are:

  • Facial pain (may be located behind the eyes, in the ears, or in the jaw muscle)
  • Pain when opening or closing mouth
  • Trouble Chewing
  • Jaw becoming stuck open or shut
  • Headaches
  • Clicking or Popping Sounds When Opening Your Mouth
  • Undiagnosed Hearing Problems/Sight Problems
  • Neck Stiffness
  • Limited Range of Motion in the Neck/Jaw

There are several reasons that could be causing these symptoms and only a medical professional can tell you if it is due to TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder). Dr. Deresh will work closely with patients to conquer this disorder with long term results.
