Temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or simply TMJ, involves a tightening, popping, or clicking of the jaw that is commonly associated with chewing or stress. This condition can occur at any time, and in some instances, it may appear there is no clear reason for the temporary tightening of the jaw muscles. Consulting with a TMJ specialist can be crucial for those experiencing these symptoms, as they can provide a thorough evaluation, accurate diagnosis, and effective treatment options tailored to individual needs. A TMJ specialist has the expertise to address the complexities of TMJ disorders, offering relief and strategies to prevent future occurrences.

In addition to the clicking, popping, and tightness of the jaw that can occur during an episode of TMJ, other symptoms can include:

    • Dizziness
    • Neck stiffness or pain
    • Shoulder pain
    • Headaches
    • Earaches

For most people, TMJ is associated with complications arising from a weakness or abnormality of the ligaments of the jaw. The body tends to place calcium around the bones surrounding those ligaments in order to strengthen the weakness. This extra calcification will often lead to further problems, such as arthritis, stiffness, and degeneration of the tissues of the neck and jaw.
