TMJ disorder is a very complex condition that can be caused by several different factors, including jaw injuries, bruxism (teeth grinding), and arthritis. Because of this, symptoms can be varied from case to case. However, there are some common indications that patients can look out for, including the following:
- Constant clicking and popping in the jaw joints
- Excessive pain that seems to be focused in the jaw, face, or ears
- Constant, severe headaches
- Difficulty with chewing or comfortably opening and closing the mouth
