Jaw Pain

Jaw pain can be difficult to diagnose; however, there are treatments available that have proven effective for many patients. Some common causes of this type of pain include trauma or injury, teeth grinding or clenching, arthritis, and dental conditions such as gum disease or cavities. If the pain originates in the jaw joint, the problem could be caused by a temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Another reason for jaw pain could be poor alignment of the teeth, which can in turn lead to bite misalignment. 

If you are experiencing jaw pain, schedule an appointment with Dr. Mojgan Mazhari to receive a comprehensive diagnosis. Dr. Mazhari can perform an evaluation and suggest the best course of treatment. Whether you have TMD, have experienced a traumatic injury, suffer from gum disease, or require care from an outside specialist, the staff at Alexandria Dental Health & Smile Studio is ready to provide you with the best experience possible.
