TMJ disorder affects the temporomandibular joint, which connects your jawbone to your skull. This condition can lead to various symptoms, such as jaw pain, facial discomfort, headaches and difficulty in opening and closing the mouth. The underlying causes of TMJ disorder can be diverse, including jaw misalignment, teeth grinding (bruxism), stress or arthritis. Effective TMJ treatment is essential to relieve these symptoms and prevent long-term complications. At Radiant Smiles, we provide a comprehensive approach to TMJ treatment, ensuring our patients receive personalized care to address the unique factors contributing to their condition at our dental center in Arlington, VA.

Symptoms of TMJ Disorders

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) can be a source of significant discomfort and pain, impacting your daily life and oral health. Recognizing the symptoms of TMJ disorder is the first step toward seeking timely treatment. Common symptoms of TMJ disorder may include:

  • Jaw Pain: One of the hallmark symptoms, individuals with TMJ disorder often experience persistent pain in and around the jaw joint area.
  • Facial Discomfort: Discomfort or pain may radiate to the face, causing headaches or earaches.
  • Difficulty in Jaw Movement: Limited range of motion, stiffness, or difficulty in fully opening or closing the mouth.
  • Clicking or Popping Sounds: Audible clicking, popping or grating sounds when moving the jaw, especially while eating or speaking.
  • Locking of the Jaw: In some cases, the jaw may lock in an open or closed position.
  • Tooth Sensitivity: TMJ disorder can lead to tooth sensitivity, as clenching or grinding can impact dental health.
  • Muscle Tenderness: Tenderness or discomfort in the muscles surrounding the jaw joint and neck.
  • Changes in Bite: TMJ disorder may cause changes in your bite, which can lead to misalignment of the teeth.

Recognizing these symptoms is crucial for seeking appropriate treatment.
