TMJ may refer to a number of disorders that cause the jaw to become misaligned. The most common symptoms of TMJ are:
- Clicking or popping noises when opening and closing the mouth
- Grinding noises when chewing
- Pain in and around the jaw
- Swelling around the jaw joint
These symptoms should be brought to the immediate attention of Dr. Evola. Prompt treatment can help eliminate discomfort while preventing the more serious consequences of untreated TMJ.
