Philadelphia TMJ Symptoms

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD/TMJ) is a commonly misdiagnosed condition. This is because many TMJ symptoms do not seem to be related to the jaw joint.

Philadelphia neuromuscular dentist Dr. Lindsey Marshall knows how to detect and treat TMJ. Even when your symptoms seem to point elsewhere, Dr. Marshall can evaluate your jaw using the principles of neuromuscular dentistry to determine if misalignment is present and help provide treatment that produces long-lasting comfort.

Symptoms of TMJ

TMJ may produce symptoms in the jaw including:

  • Clicking, popping, or grinding noises when opening and closing the mouth
  • Limited jaw movement/lockjaw
  • Pain or swelling around the jaw joint

While these symptoms seem to point to TMJ, others may not be so obvious. Examples of these more elusive symptoms include :

  • Ear ringing or pain
  • Eye or nasal pressure
  • Chronic headaches
  • Neck and back aches
  • Numbness or tingling in the hands/fingers
  • Postural changes
  • Digestive disorders

With state-of-the-art dental technology, Dr. Marshall can provide a thorough neuromuscular dentistry evaluation to determine if these symptoms are related to misalignment of the jaw. If TMJ is detected, Dr. Marshall will tailor a treatment option to meet your exact needs.

If you live in the Ardmore, Main Line, or Philadelphia areas of Pennsylvania and are suffering any of the symptoms of TMJ, please contact Lindsey Marshall, DMD to schedule a neuromuscular dentistry evaluation today.
