When Should I See My TMJ Dentist?
TMJ is a potentially painful condition of the temporomandibular joint—a hinge-like joint that connects your jaw to your lower skull.
Signs of TMJ include:

- Jaw, neck, face, and head pain

- Locking jaw joint or stiffness
- Worn teeth when associated with bruxism (grinding and clenching)
