Chronic jaw pain is extremely inconvenient and harmful to your smile and your health. In fact, it can alter your way of living in more ways than one, even by making eating extremely difficult. If you are tired of dealing with persistent jaw pain, we invite you to call our practice and schedule an appointment with your dentist, Dr. William G. Kaylakie.

It’s important to visit your dentist as soon as possible because your jaw pain can result from the TMJ disorder, teeth grinding habits, arthritis, periodontal disease, injury, infection, toothaches, and sinus problems. So, if you experience any of the symptoms of jaw pain, call our office at 512-831-5887 and schedule an appointment. Those symptoms include:

  • Pain or tenderness in the face, jaw joint area, shoulders, and neck
  • Stuck or locked jaw
  • Difficulty opening your mouth wide
  • Clicking or popping sounds in the jaw joints when you chew
  • Facial tiredness
  • An uncomfortable bite
  • Facial swelling
  • Toothaches, neck aches, earaches, and headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Shoulder pain
  • Ringing in the ears

Luckily, there are many treatments options available today that can help with your jaw pain, including:

  • Mouth guards
  • Muscle relaxants
  • Meditation
  • Root canal therapy
