Are Your Teeth Causing Your Pain?

Do you have recurring headaches in the morning when you wake up? Do you hear popping or clicking sounds when you chew? Is it painful to open your mouth wide, or has your mouth ever locked in a particular position? If you answered yes to any of these questions, your teeth may actually be causing you pain. Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are problems with the jaw and the muscles in the face that control the temporomandibular joint. This joint is a hinge that connects the jaw to the temporal bones of the skull so that the mouth can open, close, chew, speak, and move side to side. While it is not always easy to diagnose what causes TMD, the entire dental staff at Green Dental of Alexandria are here to serve any of our patients with temporomandibular pain with state of the art, environmentally conscious, and personalized dental care.

For most people who suffer from TMD, they find that their symptoms are intermittent – coming and going without warning. Because of this, stress is often a common factor in TMD. Because many people tend to grind their teeth at night or clench their jaws during the day when they are stressed, TMD is often a result. At home treatments of eating soft foods, using a hot or cold compress, over the counter pain relievers, and wearing a splint or night guard in the mouth are often the most common suggestions for relieving pain. If your pain is not lessened by these simple changes, we can look deeper into finding permanent relief.

If you are suffering from pain in your jaw, morning headaches, or if you hear a clicking sound when you open your mouth, please contact Green Dental of Alexandria today. Our practice is dedicated to helping you achieve and maintain a healthy and fully functioning smile. We are currently accepting new patients and would welcome the opportunity to serve you and your family.

I had my first visit, for a routine cleaning. I am very impressed with the ease of scheduling an appointment, the convenience of appointments outside of ""regular"" business hours, the friendly staff and the thoroughness of the examination and cleaning procedure. Dr. Park was careful, compassionate, a good listener, and explained a lot about my teeth and her recommendations to care for my dental health moving forward. I am pleased and I look forward to being a long-term patient! Thanks Green Dental of Alexandria!

Gold Stars on all fronts. The office is spotless, gives off a great vibe and has quiet soothing classical music playing. The front desk people are very warm and go above and beyond. Televisions are placed above the chairs so you can relax and watch TV while they work away under the hood. Dr. Park is very kind, thorough, and addressed all my concerns and questions.
Sure cleanings hurt a bit, but I actually look forward to them now!

Best dental experience I've had in a long time. The reception/billing staff was friendly and helpful. The dental hygienists were gentle and knowledgeable. Dr Park was kind, thorough, and answered all of my questions. I'll be back!

Dr. Park has a wonderful manner with her patients! I feel very fortunate to have her as my dentist. Her hygienists and office staff are very competent and kind. I would go nowhere else.

I just had my first appointment at Green Dental and I couldn't be happier with their service. I tend to be nervous when going to the dentist, but all of the staff were very welcoming and nice. The exam chair massages your back as you're getting your cleaning and there's a television on the ceiling to distract you from dental work. The cleaning and evaluation was very gentle. Thanks, Green Dental!

I've been a patient for 3.5 years. Today I got a tooth pulled. I am not proud of that. Dr. Park gave me options today that included allowing her to pull it or go see an Oral Surgeon. There was no way I was leaving her office when I trust her so much. I was nervous but I trust her more than anyone I've ever trusted to complete dental work. I am very found of Dr. Park and how caring and gentle her care is with each patient. I was equally impressed when I walked into her office today. Dr. Park was personally calling a patient just to see how he was doing after a visit. I joked with her about that .... what Dr. calls just to check on you anymore. Very nice. Very much appreciated.

I picked this because it was close and was impressed with the polite professionalism I encountered. Loved that I did not have to wait, but also loved the massage chair to relax tired back muscles. I felt the cost of procedures was a little on the high side...

One of the best dental clinics I've been to thus far. I love the fact that they give an incentive (free tooth whitening) for good dental hygiene and their service is impeccable. I'm happy they actually went over the x-rays and pictures they took of my teeth to give more knowledge of what they look for in x-rays. I'm so happy I found them!
