TMJ Treatment

If you are suffering from persistent headaches, especially upon waking, you may have TMJD. TMJD, or temporomandibular joint disorder, actually refers to a group of disorders that affect the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull (temporomandibular joint, or TMJ). Headaches are just one of the symptoms associated with TMJD. Other symptoms include:

  • Jaw pain or soreness
  • Changes to your bite
  • Tooth- and/or earaches
  • A “locked” jaw
  • Popping or clicking when you open or close your mouth

There are many ways to treat TMJD, just as there are many symptoms. During your TMJ consultation with one of our dentists or dental specialists, you will discuss your options for TMJD treatment. Please call Chantilly Dental Center today to schedule your TMJ consultation and begin easing your pain and improving the quality of your life today.
