Do you have persistent jaw pain that leaves your whole mouth aching, sore, or in constant discomfort? Believe it or not, it's not rare to be suffering from this example of a temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), as many Americans today can hardly open their jaws without the familiar feeling of intense discomfort and the sound of clicking or popping during activities as mundane as talking or chewing.
At Williamsburg Family Dentistry, you'll find all the answers you need for your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain symptoms and more, as Rick Rubin, D.M.D., and his trusted dentists on site make it their mission to leave your entire mouth feeling good again!
With many TMDs coming with persistent headaches, neck soreness, and even tooth sensitivity as well, it's important that you take care of TMJ discomfort right when it begins to occur. Some of the ways you can treat TMJ pain include:
- muscle relaxants
- Tylenol or Aspirin
- wearing a small mouthguard on your teeth while you sleep (which keeps you from grinding your teeth at night)
While more severe cases of TMDs may be caused from misaligned joints, either from a traumatic injury or other rare cause, the majority of treatments for TMJ relief can be started immediately right here at the office. If your TMJ problem requires surgery, there are arthroscopic solutions that aren't invasive and provide optimal comfort for your mouth, achieving full relief in a timely and convenient fashion.
If you're suffering from a TMD or general jaw discomfort, it's time you gave Dr. Rubin and his expert dental professionals a call today at (757) 345-5500 for full oral relief! After all, the staff at Williamsburg Family Dentistry offer only the best solutions for your aching jaw, presenting the top choice for overcoming TMJ pain right here in Williamsburg, VA!
