TMJ (TemporoMandibular Joint) Disorders

February 27th, 2015

TMJ refers to the jaw joint, where the jaw connects to the skull.  These are located near each ear. These joints are heavily used in speaking, facial expression and in eating.

Chronic ear pain, sore or stiff jaws, popping or clicking, headaches and trouble opening your mouth are typical symptoms of TMJ disorder. Pain may be sharp or dull and chronic. About 10 million Americans suffer from these.

Several different medical specialties may be called on to address such problems, depending on the cause determined.  These include dentists and ear, nose and throat specialists.

If you have any of these symptoms, seeing your dentist is a good first step to a solution.
