TMJ disorder is common in today’s world, and while no two cases are exactly alike, there are some common symptoms that patients can observe in their day-to-day life. These include:
Excessive pain/tenderness that’s located in the jaw
Discomfort that’s located around the ear
Constant clicking/popping/locking of the jaw joints
Difficulty with chewing and/or opening and closing the mouth properly
