TMJD Treatment is required because of an increasingly degenerative condition in the jaw bone (temporomandibular jawbone) and surrounding areas, particularly where you chew. Often, someone who has the need for TMJ Treatment will experience a number of symptoms, some of which are very general such as dizziness or a headache. Some of the more specific symptoms may include the following:
- Jaws that get “stuck” or that “lock” when opening your mouth
- Clicking, popping or grinding sounds when opening and closing the mouth (this may or may not be associated with pain)
- Swelling on the side of your face
- Limited ability to open the mouth very wide
