Is TMJ Painful? What Does It Feel Like?

Is TMJ painful? What does it feel like? And how do I know if it's serious? Well, it's painful if it hurts. If it's keeping you from performing your daily functions without facial or head pain, then it's serious if the teeth are what is causing it?

What does it look like? It looks like a bruised muscle on your face or your head.

Will it cure itself? Some people can adapt. Some people have to have an occlusal adjustment on their teeth if it's a tooth problem, if it's another kind of problem, we have to get help from outside medical specialists.
