If you’ve ever injured a shoulder or knee, you know what it feels like to put too much pressure or strain on a joint. It hurts! Excessive pressure caused by habits like teeth grinding and jaw clenching can lead to or aggravate a TMJ disorder, a painful condition that affects your jaw – and sometimes other parts of your body. We can ease your pain with TMJ treatment in Atlanta.

As with other dental issues, we prefer to use the most conservative approach possible to resolve your problem. This involves less stress and usually less expense. Orthodontics, restorations like crowns, and even surgery are sometimes used to treat a TMJ disorder. Yet many TMJ patients experience relief simply by wearing a custom-made mouthguard.
Our dentists can make impressions of your teeth and fit you for a custom mouthguard that will:
The most obvious and persistent sign of a TMJ disorder is jaw pain. You need to seek help for jaw pain that won’t go away, especially if you also experience these other TMJ symptoms:

Dr. Paez and her staff are very thorough and patient-oriented. I have been seeing the same hygienist for over 30 years. I drive quite a distance to “3460” because of the awesome dental care I receive. I highly recommend this dental office.
Never EVER have I received such exceptional service at the dentist as I do when I see Dr. Paez. Whether it is as trivial as a routine checkup or something as severe as a crown (have had two done now with Dr. Paez), Dr. Paez and Mrs. Kathy make going to the dentist something to look forward to as opposed to dread.
The staff at 3640 was friendly and efficient. Each person did whatever they could to make me feel comfortable. They are gentle, caring and unpretentious. The dentist, Xray tech and hygienist were each conscientious and very thorough. I would definitely recommend them for all ages.
My experience from beginning to the very end was amazing, everyone was very friendly and patient. They were quite thorough and did a great job at explaining what to expect. I actually look forward to coming back. Great energy from the whole staff. I know why they have such great reviews , they earned them
My visit at this dental office was great. Everyone was very professional, friendly and they really care about their patients well being. I truly enjoy having my teeth cleaned by Julie. She takes her time and make sure i am well informed concerning my dental treatments. I highly recommend Dr. Paez and her team. Take a chance. I promise you will be satisfied.
The team at 3640 Dental were all very friendly and easy to work with. Dr. Peaz makes the experience as comfortable as possible for the patient and is extremely detail oriented. I would recommend their services to others.
As always for more than 40 years I got excellent care during my appointment today. The entire staff is professional and caring toward my dental care.
I’ve been going to Dr. Grayson for decades. I’ve always had a wonderful experience at this office- they truly treat their patients like family!
From phone contact to schedule my urgent appointment, until I exit the office, the staff was excellent. Friendly, caring and gentle throughout. Thank you 3640 Dental for all you do.
Your TMJ is your temporomandibular joints. You have one joint on each side of your jaw directly in front of each of your ears. You can put your finger where your cheek meets your ear, press gently, and open your mouth a few times to feel it moving. Your TMJ is working every time you speak, smile, chew, yawn, and more.
Yes, absolutely! Many patients don’t realize just how much better they’ll feel after TMJ treatment has begun. You use your TMJ thousands of times each day, so treating any pain or discomfort is very important before the issue becomes even more problematic. Not only does TMJ treatment work, but it can be very comfortable, too!
Your general practitioner might be the first person you want to call, but actually, your dentist has much more knowledge about the muscles, nerves, bones, and other anatomy that make up your entire jaw. This is a dentist’s specialty, so it makes sense to trust one with your TMJ treatment. In fact, TMJ pain is often a result of a dental issue, which is all the more reason to ask your dentist first!
You may need ongoing treatment for a TMJ disorder. Fortunately, by wearing a simple appliance, you can prevent teeth grinding, a common cause of TMJ problems. We have helped many patients find the solution to this particularly painful problem. Today, they are enjoying their lives with fewer headaches, earaches, jaw pain, and jaw stiffness.
