TMJ: Common TMJ symptom. Perhaps night time clenching. Other TMJ symptoms include painful or limited oral opening, jaw clicking, If this is you, see TMJ expert. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals. Otherwise, see your MD.
