Dr. Lamonthe is awesome! I came in for a second opinion and was able to get the help I needed. I felt very comfortable and when receiving the numbing shot I did not feel a thing. I think I found my new dentist :)

Smyrna, GA dentist helps patients find relief from jaw pain

Jaw Pain Relief in Smyrna GA area
If you have chronic, unexplained headaches, jaw, and neck pain, you could be suffering from a condition called temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ. The muscle soreness and joint pain associated with TMJ impacts millions of people in the United States. Without treatment, TMJ disorder can have a profoundly negative impact on the quality of life. Luckily, at Smyrna Dental & Headache Center, we can help you find relief from headaches and jaw pain. If you are in the Smyrna, GA area and suspect that you may be suffering from TMJ disorder, we invite you to give us a call today for a consultation so we can perform a thorough evaluation and come up with an effective treatment plan.

What is TMJ Disorder?

TMJ disorder is the broad term for a series of conditions involving the dysfunction of the temporomandibular joints and the surrounding muscles. The temporomandibular joint and muscles are responsible for the daily movement necessary to perform tasks such as biting, chewing, and speaking. The joint is complex and moves in many different directions as you perform functions with your jaw.

Signs and Symptoms of TMJ Disorder

Here are some of the most common signs that you may suffer from TMJ disorder:

  • Persistent pain or soreness in the jaw.
  • Pain when you chew or yawn.
  • Pain or difficulty when opening or closing the mouth
  • Stiffness in the jaw
  • Click or popping when opening and closing the jaw
  • Chronic earaches, neck pain, jaw pain or headaches
  • Sensitive teeth

Who is at Risk for developing TMJ Disorder

While the exact cause of TMJ Disorder is unknown, we do know that it often affects women more than men. Injury to the jaw joint can often be a contributing factor to the development of the disorder and certain triggers such as stress or grinding and clenching the teeth can exacerbate symptoms.

Treatment for TMJ Disorder

At Smyrna Dental & Headache Center we diagnose and treat TMJ disorders. We can eliminate chronic jaw, neck, and head pain for many individuals through custom oral appliance therapy. If you are ready to find immediate relief from your TMJ symptoms, give us a call today at (678) 374 3764 to learn more about oral appliance therapy. We are happy to serve families in Smyrna, GA, and surrounding areas.
