Jaw/TMJ Pain

Symptoms can include popping, clicking, or grinding noises upon opening and closing of the jaws, tenderness of facial muscles, and headaches and neckaches. The cause of this is a problem with the way the muscles, ligaments and joint disc work together, which can stem from dislocation, injury, stress, teeth grinding, and other diseases. Treatments can include a mouth splint, orthodontics (braces), or other ways to reduce stress and pain.
