What is TMD?

Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD), commonly referred to as “TMJ”, affects up to 40% of people. Although the symptoms are often quite severe, TMD is rarely a medical emergency and can be treated effectively. 


The most common clinical symptoms of temporomandibular disorders include:


  • Pain in the jaw joint and surrounding structures

  • Pain in the face

  • Headache

  • Neck Pain

  • Popping or clicking in the jaw joints

  • A crunching sound in the jaw joints

  • Restricted opening

  • Catching or locking of the jaw

  • Pain when chewing

  • Ear pain without actual ear infection

  • A congested feeling in the ears

  • Ringing in the ears


Each patient is different and the number, intensity and frequency of TMD symptoms each person experiences is unique.


Since many of the above symptoms are not specific to temporomandibular disorders, Dr. Perkins works closely with family doctors, dentists and other members of the medical/dental community to make sure that the most accurate diagnosis and effective treatment is delivered.
