Wow, Is This TMJ Disorder?

You know that the list of symptoms that are associated with TMJ disorder is a long list. You may know some of the more obvious, frequently experienced symptoms like funny snapping or popping sounds when you move your jaw joints. However, unless you’ve looked at a comprehensive rundown of all of the possible symptoms, there may be some that catch you off guard or that you don’t even realize are connected with your TMD. Consider some interesting new details from your Corona dentist, so you have a greater grasp of the stuff that can happen when your jaw joints need a little help.

You’re Experiencing Some Lock Up!

Since all is not right with your TMJs due to TMJ disorder, you may start noticing they don’t let you do what you usually do, explains your Corona dentist. Yes, you will still be able to speak, yawn, chew, and more. However, the ease with which you move your jaws might not be so hot. Instead, you may occasionally experience a lock up. Don’t worry, it won’t last very long! Treatment will help.

You’re Having Some Ear Issues

Your ears may find their way into the fold when TMJ disorder affects your life. You might find that you have pain in your ears. You may also notice that you hear a buzzing or ringing, which is a problem associated with TMJ issues (it’s called tinnitus).

Your Headaches Just Won’t Stop

Have headaches that you didn’t have for most of your life, asks your Corona dentist? Do you notice that they linger? That they show up with more intensity when you’re tense? Head pain is an issue that frequently accompanies TMJ disorder. Treat the jaw problem to treat the pain.
