Jaw Locking: Your Path to Relief Starts Here

 What is Jaw Locking?

Jaw locking, also known as lockjaw or trismus, is a condition where the jaw becomes difficult or impossible to open or close fully. This can occur suddenly or gradually, and it often leads to significant discomfort and restricted movement of the jaw. Jaw locking is commonly associated with TMJ disorders, which affect the temporomandibular joint, the joint that connects the jawbone to the skull.

Symptoms of Jaw Locking:

  • Difficulty opening or closing the mouth
  • Jaw stiffness or soreness
  • Clicking, popping, or grinding noises in the jaw joint
  • Headaches or earaches
  • Facial pain or tenderness
  • Difficulty chewing or biting
  • Locking of the jaw in an open or closed position

These symptoms can vary in severity and may worsen over time if left untreated. At the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Cleveland, we understand the impact that jaw locking and TMJ disorders can have on your quality of life, and we’re here to help.

This is the office and staff to go to, for TMJ and or just sleep difficulties. Not only is Dr. K’s knowledge of both areas stellar, but she strives to continually educate herself to provide support and answers for her patients. I so wish I had known about the root of my sleeping problems yrs ago, but I am so thankful I have been under her care now. So many issues have improved and I am grateful.
