The most common symptoms of TMJ disorders include:

  • Pain in the jaw joint and surrounding structures

  • A crunching sound in the jaw joints

  • Restricted opening

Each patient is different and the number, intensity and frequency of TMJ symptoms each patient presents with is unique.

Obviously, many of the above symptoms are not specific to TMJ disorders. Dr. Wilson works closely with your doctor, dentist and other members of the medical/dental community to make sure that the most accurate diagnosis possible for your TMJ is made.
