Jaw Pain Alpharetta, GA

Do you suffer from pain, stiffness or clicking in your jaw? Do you wake up with a tension headache or experience ear and neck pain on a daily basis? These are signs that your TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is not functioning properly. Your TMJ is the small set of joints that connects your jaw to your skull and allows you to speak, chew and yawn. When this joint is misaligned, irritated or overworked, it can produce disruptive symptoms that threaten your quality of life. While some patients with TMJ disorder may suffer from slight jaw soreness, others may have severe pain that radiates to the ears, neck and head.

Causes of Jaw Pain

Treating jaw pain is not a one-size-fits-all approach. It is imperative to let a trained TMJ dentist determine the accurate cause of your jaw pain first. TMJ symptoms can develop due to a wide variety of circumstances and factors, including the following:

  • Nighttime Teeth grinding
  • Teeth/Jaw clenching
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Uneven teeth or dental work
  • Direct blow or injury to the jaw
  • Chewing gum excessively

Tailoring a TMJ Treatment Plan

Depending on what is causing your TMJ to function poorly, we can recommend an effective and lasting treatment plan. Some patients may need orthodontics to align their bite, while others may need a new crown or filling to make their teeth fit together more evenly. In the majority of cases, TMJ symptoms are triggered by teeth grinding or clenching habit. In such cases, a custom mouth guard can be worn at night to protect the teeth and jaw joint from such extreme forces and pressure.

At Crabapple Dental, we have an esteemed dentist who specializes in TMJ and bite problems. We even offer a TMJ questionnaire for patients to fill out online to get started. Simply contact our Alpharetta office to find relief from your jaw pain today!

Kim B.

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!

Linda S.

Dr. Roberts and her entire staff are very friendly and professional. Dr. Roberts has a great "bedside manner" and clearly explains what she needs to and why, in a very calming manner. She is a perfectionist in her work, and I can honestly say I've never experienced pain during several crown procedures. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.

Skyler S.

Every time I walk into Dr. Roberts' office, I feel at home. The establishment is clean and welcoming, and the staff is so friendly! I live in Atlanta, and I still make the trip up to Alpharetta just to go back to Crabapple Dental because I appreciate everything they do so much. They always have the most up to date technology and tools that makes my mouth feel more clean each time I go. Definitely recommend!
