If you or someone you know experiences constant facial pain or migraines, it may be due to a TMJ problem. TMJ stands for Temporal Mandibular Joint and it is the hinge joint that opens and shuts your jaw. As an experienced dentist in Herndon, Dr. Grande can help you find solutions for TMJ.
Injury, grinding, stress or arthritis in or around this joint can cause the muscles to become overworked, sore or even lead to migraine headaches.
If you are grinding your teeth, we can assist with simple at-home solutions to protect your teeth such as a dental night guard.
Damage to your jaw or mouth that affects how your teeth come together may require corrective treatment.
Call us at Grande Dental Care at (703) 471-7164 to discuss TMJ and your options.
