a young woman with a jaw pain The temporomandibular joint and surrounding muscles in the jaw are responsible for the movement required when you chew or open your mouth. When these components become damaged or stressed, they can cause pain and dysfunction. This condition is referred to as TMJ or TMD and can cause discomfort for sufferers. However, it can certainly be treated. Mitzi Morris, DMD, PC, offers effective treatments for TMJ at our office in Roswell.

Often, TMJ is caused or accentuated by dental problems. If your teeth or bite is not properly aligned, it can cause stress on the jaw joint and muscles. Missing or crooked teeth can be the reason for the misalignment of the bite, causing undue stress on the jaw. Issues like breathing through the mouth, due to sinus problems or allergies, can put extra stress on the jaw. Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can be related to TMJ/TMD, this is due to the misalignment of the jaw or an aggravation of the joint when the jaw is clenched.

We look for the cause of stress on the jaw and recommend procedures to help reduce pressure. This can include orthodontic procedures, replacing missing teeth, wearing a nightguard and other options. Overall oral health can often eliminate the pain and discomfort that comes with TMJ, giving you relief.

Jaw Pain, Facial Pain Relief!

TMJ often comes with a wide variety of symptoms. Jaw and facial pain are the most common, but others have radiating symptoms throughout the head and neck area. Some symptoms that could be caused from TMJ include:

  • Headaches
  • Tooth pain
  • Neck or shoulder aches
  • Ear aches or ringing in the ears
  • Sleep disruption
  • Clicking or grinding in the jaw
  • Issues chewing or opening the mouth

If you have been diagnosed with TMD or have some of these symptoms, contact Mitzi Morris, DMD, PC to schedule a consultation. We can perform a thorough exam to determine if you have TMJ and the cause of your discomfort. With treatment, you can get relief and recover proper function again.

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
