This disorder is characterized by persistent jaw and facial pain symptoms, neck stiffness, headaches, facial swelling, and clicking or popping noises during movement of the jaw joint. Because TMJ disorder can have a wide range of potential causes, patients experiencing these symptoms are usually advised to undergo a comprehensive TMJ assessment. During a TMJ assessment, a medical professional will examine the jaw for swelling and signs of misalignment; they may also use diagnostic imaging to pinpoint the root cause of the patient’s discomfort.
