TMD Pain Quiz

Do you have a pain in your jaw? Take this quiz to see if you are fighting a TMJ disorder.

Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD)

TMJ disorders may cause jaw pain, neck pain, headaches, and earaches, to name a few symptoms. These symptoms can be nearly persistent at times, interfering with your everyday life and overall comfort. Your jaw joint is complicated, because many doctors don’t understand how it functions or how it connects to the rest of the body. As a result, patients are referred from doctor to doctor without receiving any real answers or pain relief.
