TMJ & TMD Treatment
Do you suffer from chronic jaw pain or tension headaches? You may qualify for temporomandibular joint dysfunction dental treatment from our Napa Valley Dentist. We have a dentist who carries specialized training in treating symptoms and disorders of the jaw joint, or TMJ. Your jaw plays a vital role in supporting your teeth. The jaw joint and surrounding muscles are what control your bite, speech and chewing function. However, just like other parts of your body, your jaw joint can suffer damage or strain from time to time, and the consequences can be quite painful and disruptive.
When it comes to relieving jaw pain and addressing TMD, we pursue the latest treatment methods available. We understand that jaw problems can pose a serious threat to your daily comfort and quality of life. Therefore, we will use advanced imaging and diagnostic technology to determine the cause of your jaw dysfunction. Our dentist will recommend an effective, long-term treatment plan to ease your symptoms.
Jaw Pain, Facial Pain Relief!
When the tissues, muscles and ligaments around your jaw joint become irritated or injured, it can produce a variety of symptoms. While some patients may feel mild jaw discomfort with TMD, others may have debilitating facial pain due to their condition. Our priority is to first discover the culprit of your jaw pain, which can be a result from nail biting, teeth grinding, bite misalignment and jaw trauma.
Regardless of what is causing your jaw discomfort, we are confident we can find a solution to restore comfort to your smile. If you notice any of the following TMD symptoms, please call our jaw pain specialist in Napa Valley:
- Jaw pain or discomfort
- Ear pain or dizziness

When it comes to treating TMJ symptoms, the sooner the better. Neglecting your condition could lead to worsening pain and limited function of the jaw. Contact Alora Dentistry today to speak with an experienced and skilled TMJ dentist.
