Common symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders include:
- A sudden change in a person’s bite
- Hearing problems
- Limited jaw movement

- Popping/clicking in the jaw joint
If you are suffering from any of these symptoms and are also experiencing prolonged pain, it is highly recommended that you consult your Dentist. Your Dentist may be able to make a diagnosis of TMJ disorder while looking for the cause of your discomfort.
