TMJ/TMD Treatment Marietta, GA

Living with a temporomandibular joint and muscle disorder, referred to as TMJ or TMD, can be painful and impact the jaw function. Causes can range from teeth grinding to jaw misalignment; in some cases, the cause is idiopathic, or non-apparent. To get relief, those with TMJ/TMD can pursue treatment that can address the underlying cause or the symptoms. At Pure Smiles Dentistry, we welcome patients with TMJ/TMD and offer treatment options to stop the pain, discomfort and dysfunction.

TMJ/TMD can have a variety of symptoms that are not always in the jaw area. Some people have pain or tenderness in the jaw area, difficulty chewing or popping/clicking of the jaw. However, the symptoms can radiate to other areas, causing headaches, ear pain or facial pain. It is important to get an accurate diagnosis of TMJ to begin treating the symptoms or the underlying cause. Dental x-rays and imaging can help determine the cause and offer options for treatment.

Jaw Pain, Facial Pain Relief!

To achieve relief from TMJ/TMD, pressure and stress on the jaw joint needs to be relieved. If there is a misalignment of the jaw causing stress on the joint, orthodontic treatment can help relieve the pain and discomfort. If bruxism, or teeth grinding, is causing the jaw discomfort, a dental nightguard can offer relief. Our dental team at Pure Smiles Dentistry can help identify the cause and suggest a treatment option. We can create a customized nightguard to relieve stress on the jaw or provide orthodontic options that can relieve the jaw and facial pain, along with other symptoms of TMJ/TMD.

If you have been diagnosed with TMJ or have been suffering from jaw/facial pain, contact Pure Smiles Dentistry today. We offer effective treatment options and will help uncover the cause of your discomfort.

  • Kim P.

    Dr Patel answered my call for practically in the middle of the night. He came and had no other appointments for the day! Just to help me. The facility was immaculate and him and his hygienist were so helpful. I wish I remembered her name. It had been a while since I had been to the dentist and they never made me feel judged. Great team of people. If you are looking for a dentist give Dr. P and his team a try you won't be disappointed! See u in 2 weeks Dr. P.!i

  • Lisa O.

    Hands down the best dentist I have found. I took all three of my kids and myself. This is a welcoming, child-friendly team. It is readily apparent how well this team works together to make every patient, no matter what age, feel comfortable. I appreciate these people so much. Thank you for being such an outstanding dentist team, Pure Smiles!

  • Carmelita Ch.-H.

    Doctor/Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Always make sure you feel comfortable. Pam is an excellent Hygienist. Office space is always clean and tidy. I would recommend this office as we have been going there for the past 12 years.

  • Hudson H.

    I usually HATE the dentist! I saw all these good reviews and was a bit skeptical, but after visiting this office I now know they’re all legit. Pure Smiles made me feel comfortable and was very considerate to me. I normally leave the dentist angry, this time however I was so pleased! Everyone was empathetic and went over and beyond to help me. Everything from scheduling to payment options, they cared. I actually want to floss now.

  • Michelle P.

    I only have positive things to say about Dr.Patel and the staff at Pure Smiles in Marietta. I was in bad shape with a wisdom tooth that needed to be removed. I was seen the same morning that I called, and everything was finished in under an hour. I received a check-up call that afternoon, which I felt was very thoughtful. I went back for an overall exam the following week, and I left their office feeling great about my future dental health. Do not hesitate to call Pure Smiles. The staff is kind, efficient, and up-to-date on dental advances.
