Treating TMJ and Other Jaw Disorders
At Advanced Dental Care of NYC, we know how painful TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction) can be. That’s why our team has dedicated ourselves to treating this condition in the most efficient and comfortable manner possible. The symptoms of TMJ are debilitating and can greatly interfere with every day life. The comfort and general well being of the patient is at the heart of our Brooklyn dental practice, and pain relief is our first consideration. We’re able to test, diagnose, and devise an immediate plan to treat the underlying causes of the TMJ disorder. Today, we’re going to discuss how our team does this.
Reasons to Treat TMJ
TMJ sufferers report that their symptoms generally worsen during periods of prolonged or unexpected stress, and that intense outbreak of the condition can lead to neck pain and dizziness.
The most common cause of TMJ is the misalignment of the teeth, often called “bad bite.” Our team can realign or adjust your teeth without the need for painful or expensive surgeries. The realignment/adjustment will stop the pounding headaches, the jaw pain, and the dizziness.
The grinding teeth symptom is particularly common and usually occurs at night. The grinding will eventually erode the structure of the teeth and lead to much more severe dental problems in the future. Untreated TMJ is one of the prime underlying factors in eroded jawbones and loose teeth.
It is important for anyone experiencing the symptoms of TMJ to visit the dentist for an exact diagnosis.
