TMJ & TMD Treatment

TMJ/TMD Treatment Buford, GA

TMJ & TMD Treatment

Your jaw is an important part of your oral and overall health. It allows you to chew, speak and smile. When the temporomandibular joint and surrounding muscles are damaged, it can be painful and cause dysfunction. These disorders are referred to as TMJ or TMD and are often due to dental problems. At Buford Family Dental, we can help you get to the cause of TMJ and offer treatments for relief.

TMJ is usually due to excess stress or pressure on the temporomandibular joint, which is actually two joints that allow your jaw to open and slide back and forth. This can be caused by misaligned teeth, excess clenching of the jaw or teeth grinding. Treating the cause of excess stress on the jaw can help the joint and muscles recover and will stop the discomfort. Treatments can include fixing dental issues such as replacing missing teeth, receiving orthodontic treatment or preventing teeth grinding with a dental nightguard.

Jaw Pain, Facial Pain Relief!

TMJ/TMD can cause many symptoms that can be aggravating to live with, including jaw pain, facial pain, popping/clicking in the joint, headaches and jaw dysfunction. By addressing the underlying causes of stress on the jaw, the symptoms of TMJ can disappear, giving you relief. Our dental team uses advanced dental technology to determine the cause of TMJ to offer a treatment solution that will reduce stress on the temporomandibular joint and surrounding muscles while offering relief from pain and discomfort.

If you have been diagnosed with TMJ or think you may have a temporomandibular joint disorder, schedule an exam at Buford Family Dental. We will find the source of your jaw pain and offer a treatment solution to give you relief. Contact our office today to begin your treatment for TMD.

I chipped my tooth at 1:30pm. I called them at 2:20, and they had me in at 3:30pm. They close at 4:30. I was given the option to place a crown on my tooth that day, or make an appointment for another day. I chose to do it that day, and it was done with a smile! It was Dr. Patel’s birthday, AND he stayed past closing to assist me. The staff was very accommodating, pleasant, and knowledgeable about solutions to the problem. I highly recommend this office!

I would highly recommend this dentist office to anyone that I know. Dr. Patel took lots of time on my initial visit to answer all of the questions that I had and was very gentle and precise during my procedure. I also had a root canal done by Dr. Finot and it could not have gone any better as far as root canals go. You can tell that he has done countless root canals and the procedure is being conducted flawlessly. Thank you Buford Family Dental!

This place is awesome!! I took my teenage daughter for a root canal, and the dentist was so gentle, she fell asleep during the procedure. It’s a warm and welcoming environment, and everyone makes you feel right at home. I’m so glad I chose this place, and I would recommend Buford Family Dental to anyone.

Dr Patel takes pride in his craft! Everyone was thorough, kind, and no lectures! They took extra care to be sure I was comfortable and understood the treatment plan. I had minimal discomfort on the cleaning and fillings. We took breaks as needed and they were not shy with anesthetic! They were also on point with verifying my insurance so I knew exactly what was covered and what my cost would be. I'm so happy with the work I had done and would gladly recommend Dr. Patel and Sharon (hygienist) to anyone seeking a dentist who genuinely cares about his/her patients!
They truly have no idea the positive impact they have had on my long road to recovery. Thank You!!!

Buford Family Dental is the definition of perfection! I’ve been looking for a dentist for a couple of years now after being in Georgia and I’m glad I found BFD! Dr. Patel and his staff go above and beyond every visit. The office has been upgraded and refreshed since Dr. Patel and his staff have taken over. Very well trained and educated staff in the building. This is my go to Dentist from here on out! Thanks to all the staff at Buford Family Dental!

Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. They were able to get me an appointment same day for a dental emergency. They made sure I knew everything that eased going on. I will definitely return.

I was suffering from severe pain from a tooth that I failed to take care of, to the point that 800mg Ibuprofen wouldn’t even help. I went to another dentist first and came to Buford Family Dental for a second opinion. What separated them from the others was the transparency. They showed me pictures, x-rays and gave me a lot of useful information to soak in prior to deciding on a root canal. The procedure was smooth, pain free and so far, effective. I’ll be returning to have a permanent crown put in place.

I had 3 cavities and the dentist did a great job. Not only was the office clean but I was taken in immediately with no wait time. the dentist is very professional and knows what he's doing. I was in and out of the office in less than an hour. I highly recommend this dentistry.
