TMJ Treatment – Houston, TX
Lasting Relief from Jaw & Head Pain
Are you constantly dealing with jaw, head, neck, or ear pain? Surprisingly, all of these issues can have the same cause—a problematic jaw joint. Known as the temporomandibular joint, it can sometimes get out of sync with the teeth and bite, leading to muscle tension in the face that can easily affect other nearby areas. Dr. Alani has a lot of experience with TMJ treatment in Houston, so she can discover the root of your pain and treat it directly, so it’s guaranteed to go away.
