Dental pain, whether it originates from the teeth themselves or the jaw joint, can be both distressing and disruptive to your daily life. At Radiant Smiles, we prioritize delivering personalized and professional care to help patients find relief from these discomforts and enjoy a life free from oral pain. Dr. Chandna and our compassionate dental team offer advanced treatments to relieve tooth and jaw pain at our dental center in the Arlington and Alexandria, VA, area.

Tooth pain can result from various factors, including dental issues such as cavities, oral infections, gum disease and bruxism (teeth grinding). Teeth should not hurt – when you have a toothache, it is a sign of an oral disorder. The nerves inside the tooth relay pain when there is pressure or infection irritating the nerve roots. Jaw pain, on the other hand, may be caused by conditions like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), which affects the jaw joint’s function. Effective tooth and jaw pain treatment is essential to alleviate discomfort, improve oral health and prevent long-term complications.

Dental Pain Relief

At Radiant Smiles, we offer a comprehensive approach to tooth and jaw pain treatment, ensuring our patients receive personalized care that targets the root causes of their condition. Our treatment process may include the following steps:

  • Comprehensive Evaluation: Dr. Chandna will conduct a thorough examination, which may include digital x-rays, to diagnose and understand the extent of your dental pain. For jaw pain, an evaluation of the temporomandibular joint and bite alignment is performed.
  • Identifying Underlying Causes: We work to identify and address the underlying causes of tooth and jaw pain, whether it’s a dental infection, misaligned bite, bruxism or TMJ disorder.
  • Customized Treatment Plan: Based on the diagnosis, we create a personalized treatment plan, which may include procedures such as fillings or root canals for tooth pain, or treatments like nightguards for bruxism and therapies for TMJ disorder. Dr. Chandna believes in applying a conservative approach to treatment, only performing procedures that are needed for patient pain relief and optimal oral health.
  • Pain Management: For immediate relief from discomfort, we may provide pain management techniques to alleviate acute tooth and jaw pain.

We believe in the importance of preventive measures to manage and alleviate pain and discomfort in the long term. Our team works with patients to provide guidance on maintaining optimal oral health and preventing future pain. However, if you are currently experiencing tooth or jaw pain, contact our team at Radiant Smiles. Call our dental center in Arlington, VA, to schedule an emergency dental appointment if you have dental pain.
