TMJ Common Symptoms

Book an Appointment Call Now

The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder manifests in a complex array of symptoms that don't always affect individuals in the same way. This has made an accurate and consistent diagnosis of the condition a significant challenge, often leading to misunderstandings not only within the dental community but among physicians and other healthcare professionals as well.

Understanding the Symptoms

At Gorbatov Dentistry, we recognize the intricacies of TMJ disorders and are dedicated to enhancing the well-being and appearance of our patients. The key to successful management of this condition lies in an in-depth understanding of its numerous manifestations. Below, we enumerate some common symptoms that patients with TMJ disorders may experience:

  • Head and Face Pain: This includes 'migraine' pain, facial pain, and pain in the jaw joint.
  • Neck and Back Issues: Pain in the back, neck, cervical region, and postural problems such as forward head posture.
  • Jaw Complications: Difficulty opening the mouth (often referred to as "Locked Jaw"), deviation of the jaw to one side, or the jaw locking open or closed.
  • Headaches: Tension-type headaches and pain in the muscles surrounding the temporomandibular joints.
  • Other Pain Areas: Pain in the occipital (back), temporal (side), frontal (front), sub-orbital (below the eyes), behind the eyes (dagger and ice pick feelings), and sensitive teeth to cold.
  • Oral Habits: Clenching/bruxing and multiple bites that feel uncomfortable or “off,” and continually changing.
  • Ear and Sinus Issues: Ringing in the ears, ear pain, ear congestion, and sinus-like symptoms.
  • Balance and Vision: Dizziness or vertigo and visual disturbances.
  • Nerve Sensations: Tingling in fingers and hands.
  • Sleep Disturbances: Insomnia or difficulty sleeping.

Located on Ocean Drive, oceanfront in Hollywood, closely neighboring Hallandale Beach and Sunny Isles Beach, our world-class dental office adopts an upscale approach in dealing with TMJ disorders.

We invite you to explore the transformative experiences we offer through comprehensive care and to radiate confidence through enhanced well-being and appearance.
