Dr. Mazhari will perform a thorough examination to get to the root of the problem and will discuss with you the best treatment to stop the pain. In many instances, the pain can be relieved after just one office visit.

Treatment for Jaw Pain

Jaw pain can be more difficult to diagnose. Some common reasons for this type of pain are trauma to the area, teeth grinding or clenching, arthritis or 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 (TMJ). Another reason for jaw pain could be linked to poor alignment of the teeth.
