Get Relief from TMJ Pain


Effective treatment options for bruxism and TMJ

TMJ Treatment in Lexington Park, MD

No More Jaw Pain with TMJ Treatment

If you are suffering from jaw pain and discomfort because of TMJ, talk to Dr. Vivek Amin or Dr. Tamara Strouth about some of the latest treatment options and therapies available. Our doctors may recommend an occlusal adjustment (bite adjustment) and look for signs of bruxism (teeth grinding) to create an effective treatment plan. You can stop suffering from neck pain, shoulder pain and other TMJ symptoms with our comprehensive treatment plans.

Recognizing Symptoms of TMJ

  • Tenderness or pain around the jaw
  • Jaws that get locked into position
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Frequent toothaches
  • Facial aches and pains
  • Limited jaw mobility
  • Frequent headaches
  • Neck or upper back pain
  • Grating sounds when opening or closing the mouth

Teeth Grinding and TMJ

Many people do not realize that their teeth grinding habit may be triggering TMJ. If you have the habit of grinding or clenching your teeth, you may be wearing your teeth down and causing bite problems. A misaligned bite and worn or loose teeth can trigger jaw pain and interfere with the functioning of your jaw. We can help you break the habit of grinding your teeth by recommending lifestyle changes and prevent tooth damage by fitting you with a night guard.
