Your Jaws May Be the Source
Pain in your facial muscles. Debilitating migraine headaches. Though other explanations are possible, these conditions may share a common cause. Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ), which are located underneath the skin and muscles in front of your ear, are essentially hinges that enable you to open and close your mouth to speak, eat, laugh, and smile. They attach your lower jaw to your skull. TMJ issues can be caused by various factors, including malocclusion (tooth misalignment), teeth grinding, genetics, and jaw trauma. They can also cause facial pain and migraines. Depending on the severity of your problems, TMJ surgery in Fairfax or Fredericksburg or Manassas, VA might be your best treatment option. Dr. Ibrahim Haron, a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, excels at relieving facial pain, migraines, and other symptoms associated with the TMJ. He’s had extensive surgical training, including a hospital-based residency, that addresses issues connected to jaws and the facial anatomy in general. If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms below, we recommend that you come see Dr. Haron for an examination and consultation.
