How do I know if I have a TMJ disorder?

Common symptoms of TMJ disorders include:

  • Pain
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds in the jaw
  • Jaw muscle stiffness or locking
  • Limited jaw movement
  • A change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together

To be sure, you will need a diagnosis from an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
