Common TMJ Symptoms

Gibsonia TMJ symptomsOne of the reasons TMJ is so often left untreated for so long is that its symptoms are easy to confuse for those of other conditions. Many Gibsonia-area residents suffer from TMJ without knowing it or even suspecting they need to be checked for it.

Of course, diagnosing a condition is the first step toward fixing it. You can’t find relief from your TMJ headaches until you confirm once and for all that you’re suffering from TMJ. That’s why we urge you to arrange a consultation with our dentists if you’re suffering from the following symptoms:

  • Chronic tension headaches or migraines
  • Neck, back and shoulder pain
  • Facial pain
  • Clicking jaw
  • Difficulty biting, chewing or swallowing
  • Earaches
  • Numbness or tingling in your hands and fingers

Any individual symptom on this list might be coincidental or irrelevant – not every headache is indicative of TMJ. However, if you find yourself dealing with multiple symptoms from this list, you might very well suffer from TMJ.

The only way to know for sure, of course, is to have our experienced, specially trained neuromuscular dentists examine your teeth and jaws and diagnose your condition. We can then move forward with finding the right treatment for you.
