Health Tip: Spot the Signs of TMJ

If you have these symptoms, see a dentist

(HealthDay News) -- TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders, affecting the jaw, are commonly triggered by grinding or clenching the teeth.

The Nemours Foundation says TMJ disorders frequently have these symptoms:

  • Pain of muscle spasms in the facial muscles, the jaw joint, in or around the ear, shoulders or neck.
  • Painful chewing, yawning or talking.
  • Unusual sounds when opening or closing the mouth, such as clicking or popping noises.
  • Problems biting or chewing.
  • The jaw "locking up."
  • Difficulty hearing or ringing in the ears, feeling dizzy, or having headaches.
