TMJ disorders are caused by injury, arthritis, or habits such as grinding the teeth at night. These disorders may produce some of the following symptoms:

Not all discomfort of the jaw is the result of a TMJ disorder. In many cases, stress causes the muscles in the jaw to tense, resulting in symptoms similar to those characteristic of a TMJ disorder. Special imaging techniques may be needed to properly diagnose jaw problems and correct them accordingly.
