Are you one of the many Alexandria TMJ sufferers? If you are affected by Temporomandibular joint or TMJ disorder, you know how the pain and discomfort can influence your life. Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry TMJ treatment has helped countless Mt. Vernon patients manage their TMJ disorder.
The Temporomandibular or jaw joint connects the lower jaw bone to the skull. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include jaw and facial pain, headaches, earaches, neck pain and chewing difficulty. TMJ disease is often associated with jaw clicking, locking or clenching, and can cause dangerous tooth damage and bone loss.
Many Alexandria and Mt. Vernon TMJ patients first sought a possible TMJ diagnosis after trying unsuccessfully to relieve their frequent headaches. Since opening Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in 1983, we have discovered that many dental patients don’t realize they have TMJ disorder because it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what is causing the pain. A TMJ specialist can properly diagnose your specific TMJ issues and recommend an effective course of action.
Because a comprehensive treatment plan is most successful, we work hand-in-hand with a network of Mt. Vernon TMJ specialists including ENT doctors, neurologists and physical therapists. There are many facets to this often misunderstood disorder. If you are suffering from jaw pain, we recommend a consultation with Drs. Geren & Mady at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria.
