Symptoms of TMJ Disorder

If you are suffering from any of the symptoms related to TMJ disorder, Dr. Adam Nischwitz can help!

A few of the symptoms and signs of TMJ disorders can include all or some of the following

  • Pain or tenderness of your jaw
  • Pain in one or both of the temporomandibular joints
  • Aching pain in and around your ear
  • Difficulty chewing or pain while chewing
  • Aching facial pain
  • Locking of the joint, making it difficult to open or close your mouth

Temporomandibular Joint disorder can cause a clicking sound or grating feeling when you chew or when you open and close your mouth. As a patient suffering from potential TMJ syndrome if no pain and no limitation of movement is present when jaw clicking sound is present, you probably won’t need treatment for a TMJ disorder.

Dr. Adam Nischwitz has a extensive background in diagnosing and treating TMJ syndrome, a disorder of the jaw bone at the connection point to the skull.
