Recognizing TMJ Symptoms

Common TMJ Disorder Symptoms in the head, jaw, ears, teeth, and neck

Discover what’s wrong with your TMJ and why you have symptoms. Get a clear plan to fix it.

You know your TMJ isn’t working properly but don’t know where to start to fix it. We’ll show you exactly what to do and how to get a detailed plan to fix it.

The most obvious TMJ symptoms are clicking and popping in the jaw, locking of the jaw and pain when you open, close or chew your food. Other obvious TMJ symptoms include grinding sounds in the joint, pain around the temple or tightness or fatigue in the muscles of the jaw.

Yet, there are less obvious symptoms that still come from TMJ dysfunction. So, you may not be feeling pain for the reason you think. This category includes headaches, migraines, neck pain, ear pain, ringing in the ears, vertigo, and blocked stuffy ears.

 

When you don’t have a way to identify what’s wrong with your TMJ, you get stuck in an endless cycle of temporary, symptomatic relief.

We’ve seen it happen to too many patients. You don’t know how to fix your TMJ so you end up trying one idea after another hoping something will work. In the end, you waste a ton of time, effort and money chasing symptoms, with nothing to show for it.

Here’s why.

You see, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) can go undiagnosed by many physicians – which is why if the underlying cause of the pain is misdiagnosed, you won’t get better.

 

The truth is that most TMJ remedies don’t work.

If the problem is misdiagnosed, the solution won’t work. This sounds so obvious, yet large numbers of doctors and patients alike rush headlong into treatment, sometimes with powerful drugs and yet a correct diagnosis was never made.

Even if you have a great doctor, your treatment will fail if your TMJ symptoms aren’t diagnosed properly.

At the Atlanta Center for TMJ, we’ll give you a treatment plan that works. Your custom plan will guide you through what’s causing your TMJ symptoms, the correct diagnosis and a detailed plan on how to fix it, using our proprietary MIRO Therapy®.

All with no shots, drugs or surgery. And results so effective, they’re unconditionally guaranteed.

What is the cause of TMJ symptoms and disorders?

The number one cause of TMJ symptoms and disorders is a misalignment of the temporomandibular joints caused by a poor bite relationship (how your teeth fit together).

Even though your bite may feel perfectly comfortable and natural to you… your bite may not be properly aligning the ball in the socket of your TMJ. Keep in mind, it can be off by as little as a tenth of a millimeter and still be enough to cause severe pain and symptoms.

 

So, what’s the risk of leaving TMJ untreated?

Simply stated… TMJ symptoms worsen left untreated. It’s no different than ignoring symptoms in our knee, hip, shoulder or any other joint in our body. They get worse over time.

As the TMJ disorder continues, more damage occurs. The bones can degenerate, muscles become damaged, fatigued and weakened. Nerves become inflamed. Mechanical function in the joint becomes impaired.

 

How can I get relief for my TMJ?

Successfully treating your TMJ doesn’t have to be complicated.

First, get the correct diagnosis. Make sure your TMJ symptoms are diagnosed by a TMJ specialist who knows how to properly identify your symptoms and their true, underlying cause.

Second, get the correct plan of treatment. At the Atlanta Center for TMJ you’ll get both. Our plan will work for you.

We’ve successfully treated thousands of cases and they all started with one thing.

A correct diagnosis.

At your consultation you’ll meet one-on-one with the guy THE WALL STREET JOURNAL calls, “One of the most sought after TMJ specialists in the world.”  Dr. Fred Abeles. The best part? He’ll make sure your TMJ symptoms are diagnosed properly the first time.

    These symptoms typically are not isolated, unrelated problems. They’re usually symptoms of a single, larger underlying problem.

    The TMJ is the only joint in the human body that’s entirely positioned by where teeth come together. If the bite aligns the jaw joints incorrectly, and the discrepancy can be as small as a few hundredths of an inch, the muscles of the head and neck that have to stabilize and support the jaw joints in that position can fatigue, stress or spasm.

    Often upon close inspection, the bite may be misaligning the lower jaw and jaw joints resulting in the muscles of the head and neck creating tremendous pain. And the tendons, ligaments, articular disc and condylar head can be malfunctioning as a result of the faulty bite.

    So clicking, popping, locking, limited range of motion, headaches, migraines, facial pain, neck pain and other symptoms many times are NOT separate, unrelated symptoms. They are signs of TMJ progression.

    Rather, they are a compilation of ONE underlying problem that many times has been misdiagnosed or completely overlooked in the past.

    Stop treating just the symptoms.

    There are many different treatment options available and just as many doctors to provide them. Everyone can tell you their remedy works miracles. How do you choose correctly? Who can you trust?

    With everyone stating their way is the best way, finding the right treatment can be difficult. Choose the wrong doctor or receive the wrong diagnosis and it can result in wasted time and effort, not to mention money or worse yet, further damage.

    Here’s what it takes to achieve proper treatment results:

    Get THE ONE THING that matters most, right. Correctly identify the underlying tissue that’s causing the symptoms and dysfunction. Then – you can treat it successfully.

    Don’t settle for a treatment approach that only wants to address your symptoms but not the underlying cause. If you do, a far more serious problem occurs…

    The actual condition continues to deteriorate – unabated.

    There’s an important difference in our approach.

    Our Doctor

    Dr. Abeles is one of the most sought after TMJ experts in the world. He has decades of experience to identify and treat these symptoms and disorders successfully. And his therapy is so unique it’s unavailable anywhere else.

    His job is to make physiological connections that nobody else sees – to connect the dots better than anyone else – to get to the bottom of the problem once and for all.

    Our Diagnostic Process

    The amount of time we spend in the diagnostic phase before beginning treatment is unrivaled. We do this to be certain we get it right the first time.

    No misdiagnosis. No five-minute visit and handful of prescriptions. Only after a complete and thorough understanding of the entire system can a proper diagnosis be made. Treatment success hinges upon it.

    Our Technology

    Technology has revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders. We use highly specialized computer analysis to understand the behavior and function of the jaw, temporomandibular joints and muscles of the head and neck right down to the tiniest nuance. No detail is overlooked.

    The secret behind our treatment success isn’t hard to understand…

    Stop guessing. Stop masking symptoms. Stop settling for an incomplete or hurried diagnosis. A shortsighted approach will not beat a comprehensive approach.

    It won’t come close. Consider this…

    We now possess the technology and knowledge to precisely determine the actual underlying cause of TMJ symptoms and dysfunction.

    Our proprietary MIRO Therapy® can successfully treat your TMJ, headache or migraine symptoms without shots, drugs or surgery.
