COMMON TMJD SYMPTOMS

TMJD can cause a wide range of side effects beyond those you might typically associate with temporomandibular joint disorders. If you experience any of these symptoms, consult with a dentist or doctor to discuss your symptoms and risk factors. 

  • Head and scalp: TMJ patients have reported pain in the forehead and/or temples, migraine-like discomfort, sinus pain, cheek pain, and a shooting sensation traveling from the back of the neck into the head. Some people also find that their hair and scalp feel tender.
  • Eyes: People with TMJD might notice that their eyes are bloodshot or sensitive to light. An improperly situated temporomandibular joint may also cause one’s eyes to bulge.
  • Ears: Along with general ear pain, some people say their ears feel clogged or itchy. TMJ patients also report changes in their hearing, including hissing, buzzing, or ringing(tinnitus). A misaligned TMJ can also contribute to dizziness.
  • Mouth and jaw: People suffering from TMJD often experience limited mobility. Some of the classic indicators of TMJ are trouble opening the mouth smoothly, the jaw shifting to one side or the other when opening the mouth, or having the jaw lock closed or open. TMJ can also cause grating sounds, clicks or pops in your joints, and uncontrollable movements of the jaw and/or tongue.
  • Teeth: Loose or sore back teeth are a common symptom of TMJD, and bruxism (teeth clenching or grinding) may exacerbate the condition.
  • Throat: TMJ patients may have difficulty swallowing or have a sore throat without any other infection that might be the cause of discomfort. Laryngitis may also occur.
  • Neck: People with TMJD may experience neck stiffness and pain and tired or sore neck muscles.
  • Arm and shoulder: Arm and finger numbness sometimes occur in TMJD patients. Many patients also experience shoulder soreness and backaches, particularly if posture is a contributing factor to their TMJD.
