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.

I visited the Woodbridge office to have my wisdom teeth extracted. The experience was wonderful. The staff and Dr. Zadeh were professional and kind and did an excellent job. I would highly recommend them.

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…

Despite all my nerves, my experience was really great! The staff was very helpful and patient with me and they were easy to talk to. I had minimal pain and discomfort during and after my wisdom teeth extraction. I healed surprisingly fast after the procedure, too! I would absolutely recommend to a friend or to someone who is looking for an oral surgeon!

I highly recommend Dr. Jackson to anyone reading t…

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.

Had not had a tooth pulled in about 50 years so really could not remember what to expect. Things went pretty smoothly I’m pleased to report. Was sorry to hear that BC/BS stopped covering tooth extractions in 2015! Glad to have the infected tooth out of my mouth…appreciate being taken by your practice on short notice.

Unfortunately we had to be seen for an emergency situation. Dr. Haron was very thorough with informing us of what was to be expected. He was spot on with what happened and what he told us to expect. His calm, gentle demeanor was quite settling for us.
