Jaw Pain & Treatment

Many people who suffer from TMD or TMJ don’t know that there are safe and easy ways to eliminate jaw pain. Often caused by misaligned joints, jaw pain can negativley affect your life and stop you from participating in simple daily activities. As a TMJ dentist, Dr. George is here to help. He can assess your symptoms and determine whether your jaw pain may be related to temporomandibular joint disorder, called TMJ or TMD for short. TMJ syndrome is a term that covers acute or chronic inflammation of the temporomandibular joint.

If you you clench or grind at night or during the day, this habit could be the root of your jaw pain. Other times, injury, malocclusion, or heredity cause jaw pain. Stress is also a very common factor. Relief from jaw pain may be as simple as wearing a custom-made oral splint that relieves pressure in the jaw joints.
