  • vertigo (dizziness)
  • Bell’s palsy, a nerve disorder unrelated to TMD

  • jaw pain
  • limited jaw movement or locking jaw
  • numbness in the fingers and arms
  • worn or cracked teeth
  • clicking or popping in the jaw joints
  • jaw joint pain

  • deviation of the jaw to one side
  • the jaw locking open or closed
  • postural problems (forward head posture)
  • pain in the joint(s) or face when opening or closing the mouth, yawning, or chewing
  • pain in the muscles surrounding the temporomandibular joints
