You may have temporomandibular joints (TMJ) if you are experiencing:
⦁ Popping or grating sound when you open or close your mouth
⦁ Headache or pain in your jaw, ear, neck, or face
⦁ Pain or swelling of the jaw muscles
⦁ Tingling or numbness in the jaw or face
⦁ Trouble opening or closing your mouth, or your jaw locks
TMJ affects joints, jaw muscles and facial nerves originating from temporomandibular (TM) joints. This causes discomfort and pain and may also compromise a person’s health.
Located on each side of the head, these joints work together, with a complex system of muscles, ligaments, discs and bones, to make different movements for chewing and speaking.
