TMJ Treatment

Most of us experience soreness or tightness in the jaw at times. In most cases, these symptoms go away quickly. When the pain is persistent, it may be a sign of something more serious. If your pain makes chewing, smiling and even breathing difficult, you may be suffering from a condition known as TMJ.

TMJ disorder gets its name from the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) which connects the lower jaw to the skull. TMJ disorders (sometimes called TMD) can cause chronic pain in the head, neck, jaw or face; problems with chewing or biting; and popping or clicking sounds in the jaw when opening and closing the mouth.

Oral Appliance Therapy

At Tribeca North Dentistry, we specialize in custom-made oral appliances that can help in the treatment of TMJ. Use of these appliances will decrease compression on pain-sensitive tissue, hold the joint in its proper place and realign the jaw and its muscles, alleviating many of the symptoms of this condition.

If you are suffering from jaw pain, make an appointment to learn how we can alleviate your pain and prevent damage. You can reach our Upper East Side location at (212) 876-6475 or Tribeca at (212) 966-6680.

"I have never felt better about taking my kids to the dentist than I have at Tribeca Dentistry. My kids had cavities and Dr. Ela walked them through the process without a hitch. The staff is the friendliest I have ever met and the place is immaculate. I am in the HealthCare business myself and I recommend Tribeca Dentistry with the highest regards!!!"
