tmj-symptoms If you've logged onto this site, there is a good chance that you or someone you care about is having a problem and you're looking for some help. For many years, TMJ Disorder was misunderstood by health care professionals and their patients. We would like to try to be of some help to you. This web site offers help to people who are having a variety of problems involving the head, face, and neck. The symptoms you may be experiencing include:

  • pain and soreness in your jaw joint and muscles of your face
  • headaches
  • noises in your jaw joint such as clicking or popping sounds
  • difficulty opening or closing your jaw
  • your jaw locking open or closed
  • difficulty chewing food
  • your teeth not feeling like they fit together properly
  • difficulty opening your mouth wide
  • ringing in your ears
  • grinding your teeth
  • awakening in the morning with soreness in your jaw or muscles of your face
  • sleep problems
  • feeling worried about these symptoms
  • feeling stressed

If you have one or more of these symptoms, you may be experiencing a temporomandibular joint disorder, commonly called "TMJ". Research has shown that 5 to 15% of the population have a TMJ disorder requiring some type of professional treatment. Our intention is to help provide you with accurate and reliable information about your problem so that you can:

  • better determine if you have a TMJ disorder
  • decide if you need to seek professional help
  • determine if you have a different type of problem (not "TMJ")
  • stop worrying and lower your stress level
  • make good decisions about your health care
  • You can accomplish all this right now, by taking a simple and inexpensive screening test that has already helped hundreds of thousands of people in a situation similar to yours. This test is called the TMJ ScaleTM and has been used across the U.S. and Canada in dental offices since 1986. This web site and service is being made available to you by Pain Resource Center, Inc., the original TMJ Scale developer and publisher.
