It’s time to do something about it! Jaw pain related to TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) can be serious and if not treated, can lead to pain in other areas such as the neck and head. The TMJ joint is the most consistently used joint in the body and TMJ disorder can have many symptoms including clinching or grinding, clicking or popping, and head or neck pain. Arthritis, which is a result from clenching or grinding your teeth, is a common cause of TMJ disorder. Other common causes of TMJ disorder include displacement of the disc, a hole, or even a perforation in the disc. It is important to diagnose what is causing the TMJ disorder in order to treat it properly. Diagnosing and treating TMJ disorders can be complex.
