Common TMJ Symptoms

TMJ is caused by the improper alignment of the temporomandibular joint. It occurs more often in women but can also be diagnosed in men. While TMJ is extremely common and affects over 20 million people, the symptoms should not be ignored. The longer you wait to be treated, the worse your symptoms can get. The following symptoms can create pain ranging from slight discomfort to excruciating pain:

  • Pain in the jaw joints
  • Grinding of the teeth
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Vertigo
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Neck and upper back stiffness

Patients suffering from any of the above symptoms should schedule a consultation at Lakota Dental immediately. Dr. Mike Lakota will examine your jaw alignment and get to know your symptoms before providing an expert diagnosis. After we have confirmed your TMJ diagnosis, we will begin designing a custom orthotic device to help treat your TMJ and relieve your symptoms.
