Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD) generally fall into 3 main categories:
  • Myofascial pain, the most common form of TMD, which is pain or discomfort or pain in the muscles that control jaw function and the neck and shoulder muscles.

  • Internal derangement of the joint, meaning a dislocated jaw or displaced disc, or injury to the condyle.

  • Degenerative joint disease, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis in the jaw joint.

A person can have one or more of these symptoms at the same time.
Symptoms of a TMJ Disorder include:
  • Limited movement or locking of the jaw

  • Radiating pain in the face, neck or shoulders

  • Painful clicking, popping or grating sounds in the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth

  • A sudden, major change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together

  • Headaches, earaches, dizziness, and hearing problems
