Pain can be located directly in the joint (just in front of the ear) or radiate to the teeth and head. Cracking and restriction of mouth opening are common coexisting symptoms.

The jaw joint is influenced by the position of the teeth, that’s why sometimes a simple visit with Your dentist can cause problems.
