TMJ Disorder in Northern Virginia

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders cause a great deal of discomfort and annoyance for a large segment of the population. There are a variety of symptoms that are lumped together in this category of disorders, from headaches, muscle pain and stiffness to “popping” and pain in the joint itself. We can provide a wide variety of treatments to resolve these problems, ranging from analgesics and muscle relaxants to open joint surgery. For most patients, after our doctors conduct an evaluation in the office, we begin therapy with conservative care, proceeding through a series of other treatment options before recommending any consideration of joint surgery. Following treatment, patients experience less pain, are better able to eat and chew their food, and may experience fewer headaches as well.

What are TMJ Disorders?

Several conditions may be related to TMJ disorders, but they can be quite varied, and they are often difficult to pinpoint. Some problems result from arthritis, dislocation, and injury. All of these conditions can cause pain and dysfunction. Muscles that move the joints are also subject to injury and disease. Injuries to the jaw, head or neck, and diseases such as arthritis, might result in some TMJ problems. Other factors that relate to the way the teeth fit together – the bite – may cause some types of TMJ disorders. Stress is thought to be another factor.

What are some options for treatment of temporomandibular disorders?

Treatments for TMJ disorders may include stress-reducing exercises, muscle relaxants, or wearing a mouth protector (night guard) to prevent teeth grinding. If these non-surgical treatments are unsuccessful, then surgery may be needed. Once your TMJ disorder is diagnosed, our oral surgeons can provide the appropriate treatment to relieve the problem.

We love Dr.LaBriola he was so gentle with my daughter when she had her wisdom teeth out. Both of my daughter’s friends went to him too and they said the same thing 😊

Great experience. Everyone was calm and very reassuring during both my consultation and wisdom teeth removal visit. Despite my anxiety, everyone spent their time seeing if I had questions and tried to create a relaxing atmosphere before I had to go through with the surgery. Highly recommend anyone coming here. Clean and modern office with a 10/10 experience throughout.

Dr. Zadeh is not only a very qualified oral surgeon, he is a very warm and easy to communicate with kind of person. I had a lower canine that had been root-canaled some time ago and ended up having a painful infection. He took out my infected tooth like he pulled out a needle from a butter, not feeling any pain at all. He then placed an imediate implant. He is very efficient in using his time and…

Dr. Jackson was extremely professional, patient, informative as well as friendly and enjoyable. She explained everything in great detail before my procedure. My personal dentist, Dr. Jones, recommended her. I knew if Dr. Jones recommended her she had to be great. My procedure was exactly as she explained. Her assistant Rosemary was also wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Jackson to anyone reading t…

I was referred to NVOMSA by our family dentist, and I have t say I was very impressed with Dr. Zadeh and his staff. My son had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted and had a great experience. The procedure took about 1/2 and hour and my son is recovering very well, miniaml swelling. Overall and excellent experience. They did a great job with my son’s wisdom teeth extractions.

I have been a patient for many years. Whenever I have needed a tooth removed I have gone to them. My experience has been pain free during the procedure and very little pain or swelling after. I would highly recommend the doctors at Northern Virginia Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates.

The staff there is amazing at the Annandale location. I was getting my wisdom teeth removed (2 before but just did all 4) and I was so nervous about it. Everyone is nice and helped me calmed down. Very surprised that it felt really quick :)

I had an abscess beneath my right back molar. The pain was unbearable. I was referred by a friend to NOVA Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates by a friend. I couldn’t have been happier about my treatment, procedure and outcome. I am now pain-free. I was very impressed with the staff and service. In fact, I am about to schedule another appointment with them to install an implant for the e…

I’m afraid of all doctors but this was the best experience I’ve ever had. Everyone was extremely nice, with a warm inviting atmosphere. Their manager, Kelly was patient with all of my questions and helped me without hesitation. If I hear of someone needing surgery, this is who I’d recommend.
