One of the most used joints in our face, the temporomandibular joint, allows us to chew, talk, and even yawn. When the muscles around the joint or the joint itself begin to not function properly, a patient may start to feel pain or discomfort.
Symptoms of TMJ
Difficulty opening your mouth wide
Pain or discomfort around the jaw, face, neck, or shoulders
Pain or discomfort while trying to chew
Swelling on the side of your face
Jaws that get “stuck”
Popping or clicking sound as you open and close your mouth
