“The temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects your jaw to your skull. When this joint is injured or damaged, it can lead to a disorder called temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome.

Some of the most common TMJ symptoms include:

Headaches (often mimicking migraines), earaches, and pain and pressure behind the eyes
A clicking or popping sound when you open or close your mouth
Pain brought on by yawning, opening the mouth widely or chewing
Jaws that “”get stuck,”” lock
Tenderness of the jaw muscles
A sudden change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together.

If you are feeling any of these symptoms, come in for a consultion and treatment options.
