Discover Life-Changing Relief

Jaw pain can range from mild to severe. It can be a small distraction in your day or lead to unbearable headaches that leave you inoperable. Jaw pain, difficulty chewing, and tinnitus or ringing in the ear, can all point to the same source. With an in-depth understanding of oral health, we recognize that the whole is made of many distinct parts. Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ), your bite (how your teeth fit together), and even unhealthy oral habits can all affect one another and contribute to your facial pain and your daily distraction. Finding a way for each part to align and work as one is the task we hope to lead, if not play some part in. Doctors from dentists to surgeons to sleep specialists may play a role in your journey to proper oral health and life-changing care. Don’t wait any longer. Treat your jaw pain in San Clemente, CA at our state-of-the-art practice San Clemente Oral & Facial Surgery, and receive the care you need for a functioning and healthy life!

Before we provide treatment, we’ll invite you to our San Clemente, CA practice to perform an exam on your jaw, review in-depth scans of your oral structures, and may even recommend a sleep study be performed as well. We’ll also consider your whole-body health, posture, and breathing. Depending on your unique case, we’ll review a treatment plan with you which could include one or more of the following solutions.

Align your Smile and Your Health

A straighter, more confident smile is just the beginning. The boost in your self-esteem can have lasting effects not only on your immediate emotional health but your overall outlook on life. Oral function will also be renewed which means you’ll be able to eat and speak with greater ease as well. However, one area many of our patients in San Clemente, CA are actually surprised to experience is better oral health. With straight teeth comes easier hygiene routines. Gaps no longer trap food and crowded teeth are easier to floss. This advantage has shown long-term effects on our patients’ oral health, minimizing tooth decay and gum disease, as well as protecting their systemic health. If left untreated dental decay and infection can spread to become systemic infection. Don’t let the hassle or cost of orthodontics stop you from receiving the benefits of orthodontics.
