Three Signs You May Have TMJ

TMJ, alternately known as TMD, is the name given to any disorder impacting the proper alignment of the teeth. The most common symptom of TMJ is clicking or popping in the jaw – particularly when chewing or biting – which may be accompanied by swelling and some physical discomfort. More pronounced pain around the jaw, even absent clicking or popping, may also be a symptom of TMJ and should be brought to the attention of Mission Viejo neuromuscular dentist Dr. E.M.
