    pain especially around ear, temple or cheek, occasionally tinnitus
    headache, neck pain
  • Joint noises like clicking, popping Locked jaw,
    dislocated jaw

Genetics, trauma, bad habits like teeth clenching or
grinding, malocclussion (problematic upper and lower teeth contact), stress or
degeneration, hormones, inflammation, neoplasia can be the causes of TMJ
diseases.
