What Is TMJ?
TMD (temporomandibular disorders), often referred to as TMJ, is characterized by significant jaw pain and limitation in jaw joint movement and function. TMJ can affect swallowing, chewing, talking, and can even cause breathing issues.
Several symptoms are most commonly associated with TMJ, including recurrent facial pain, swelling, constant teeth grinding, facial sensitivity, jaw joint locking, and a limited range of motion in the jaw.
TMJ symptoms can vary, but will typically include:
- Pain and tenderness around the jaw, ears, cheeks, and neck
- Pain while chewing
- Pain while yawning
- Locking of the jaw
- Stiffness of the jaw
- Uncontrolled change in facial expression
- Changes in how the lower and upper teeth fit together
If you're experiencing significant jaw pain and discomfort, or any of the symptoms of TMJ, Dr. Karimi will perform an examination to determine the best treatment route for your needs!
