One of the most common early signs of a TMJ disorder is a clicking or popping sound from the jaw.

Many dentists do not provide treatment to patients with a clicking or popping sound unless the patient is experiencing pain or is having problems opening or closing the mouth.

It is our belief though that it is important to treat this symptom before the disorder or pain becomes more obvious. A proper mouth guard from a properly trained dentist will help to prevent premature wearing down of the teeth due to grinding and also help prevent the worsening of a TMJ disorder.
