TMJ/TMD Symptoms

Learn More About TMJ/TMD

Signs and symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) vary in their presentation and can be very complex, but are often simple.

On average the symptoms will involve more than one of the numerous TMJ components: muscle, nerves, tendons, ligaments, bones, connective tissue, and the teeth. Ear pain associated with the swelling of proximal tissue is a symptom of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).

The symptoms of TMJ are debilitating and can greatly interfere with every day life. The comfort and general well being of the patient is at the heart of the dental practice, so pain relief is the first consideration of the dentist. The dentist is able to test, diagnose, and devise an immediate plan to treat the underlying causes of the TMJ disorder.
