Common TMJ Symptoms

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, or TMJ, is a condition that involves the temporomandibular joint, where your lower jaw meets your skull. When the temporomandibular joint is not aligned, a number of symptoms, collectively known as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ), occur. TMJ is hard to diagnose. That’s why it’s important to see a dentist who has extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ. 

Common symptoms of TMJ include: 

  • Headaches 
  • Neck pain 
  • Arm pain or numbness 
  • Sore, chipped or broken teeth 
  • Popping sound in the jaw 
  • Jaw pain 
  • Locking jaw 
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
