TMJ Relief with Neuromuscular Dentistry
Burke, Fairfax and Fairfax Station, Virginia
Apart from neuromuscular dentists like Dr. Pamela Marzban, few people realize the importance of the small joint that connects your upper and lower jaw, the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ. This small, triangular joint is very sensitive to neuromuscular stress and TMJ problems can lead to a wide range of symptoms, from minor pain to severe TMJ migraines. Our neuromuscular dentist Dr. Marzban has the elite LVI training and cutting-edge technology to diagnose and treat TMJ issues for people throughout the DC metro area and Northern Virginia.
Relief from TMJ Symptoms
TMJ problems can originate from a misaligned bite, called malocclusion, as well as physical, emotional, and psychological stress (Learn more about misalignment of the jaw). These factors can push the TMJ joint out of its natural, relaxed position, leading to strain on the surrounding muscles and nerves, which in turn can lead to:
- Neck, back, and shoulder pain
- Clenching and grinding
- Recurring migraines
- Problems chewing
- Airway problems, including sleep apnea
If you are experiencing one or more TMJ symptoms, Dr. Marzban will take the time to listen to your problems and determine if your symptoms are related to TMJ. By really listening to you and building a relationship of trust, we feel that we can better understand your needs and find solutions that fit your lifestyle. Our caring, friendly team will help educate you on your TMJ treatment options at our comfortable Burke, Virginia office.
Each person with TMJ issues experiences a unique set of challenges and symptoms, so we offer several options for relieving TMJ symptoms. Dr. Marzban may recommend a custom-fitted oral appliance that adjusts for any dental misalignment to allow your TMJ joint to rest comfortably in the correct position. She may also recommend pain relief with massage therapy or light, safe electrical stimulation with the high-tech TENS device. If your bite is significantly misaligned, she may even recommend more comprehensive bite correction with porcelain veneers, braces, or Invisalign®.
Before you decide on a TMJ treatment plan, Dr. Marzban will listen patiently to your needs and concerns and educate you about the benefits of each TMJ treatment option.
