Your temporomandibular joints – which are located on each side of your head near your ears – are part of a complex system that allows you to open and close your mouth. If any part of this system becomes compromised, TMJ disorder can occur.
TMJ disorder can cause a variety of painful symptoms, including:
- Chronic, migraine-like headaches
- Popping sounds near the jaw joints
- Difficulty opening or closing your mouth
- Facial pain and stiffness
- Ringing in your ears
- Pain in your neck and shoulders
TMJ disorder is common and treatable. In this video, Dr. Lance Loveless explains how a trained neuromuscular dentist can help relieve your TMJ pain.
