You may be bothered by popping or clicking sound during opening and closure of your jaw, along with limited opening that may be accompanied by pain and soreness.   Some even experience “locked jaw”.

These are common symptoms of temporomandibular joint dysfunction, experienced by 15% of American adults, especially women. Other signs could be grinding your teeth, severe headaches for no apparent reason, dizziness, swelling on the side of the face, neck and shoulder discomfort, occasional ringing in the ears, or tooth pain or sensitivity that is hard to locate precisely.

Patients suffering from TMD are unable to eat and maintain the daily function of their jaw. Fortunately, Wilshire Smile Studio specializes in treating TMD, giving our patients relief from the symptoms, while dealing with the root causes.

Some of the most common TMD symptoms include:

  • Pain in the face, jaw or ear area
  • Headaches (often mimicking migraines), earaches, and pain and pressure behind the eyes
  • A clicking or popping sound when opening or closing the mouth
  • Jaw that “gets stuck,” locked or goes out of place
  • Tenderness of the jaw muscles
  • Swelling of the face

Most problems, whether muscular or within the joint, get better over time. For this reason, most experts agree that it’s best to use conservative treatment at first. But in some instances, surgery or other procedures, such as Botox injections, may be recommended as a first treatment.

Most people with TMD have temporary symptoms that are not serious and do not get worse. They usually can get better with simple treatments done at home. Sometimes symptoms go away without any treatment at all. They also can come back without warning.

If you have any symptoms of TMD, please do not hesitate to call our office or mention your concerns during your next dental check-up.
