Temporomandibular (TMJ) disorder involves multiple conditions affecting the jaw joint. Though less common, children can experience jaw pain and other symptoms related to this condition.
A dentist can diagnose issues connected to TMJ and provide treatment, or refer your child to an orthodontist.
Symptoms can include difficulty opening and closing the mouth, jaw pain, earaches, headaches, and popping or clicking when moving the jaw.
