TMJ Symptoms

In addition to clicking or popping in the jaw, TMJ may produce symptoms including:

  • Chronic headaches
  • Generalized facial pain
  • Swelling around the jaw joint
  • Eye and nasal pressure
  • Ear pain and ringing
  • Neck and shoulder aches

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, alone or in combination, it is best to have your jaw examined for alignment issues. In many cases TMJ treatment is both noninvasive and incredibly simple. During your initial evaluation Dr. Young will assess your jaw to determine if TMJ is present and discuss appropriate treatment methods as necessary.
