TMJ & TMD Treatment

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jawbone to your skull. This hinge joint plays a critical role in allowing your mouth to open and close. Theses joints make it possible for you to eat, swallow and speak comfortably. When this joint is overworked or becomes damaged, disruptive symptoms can result. Patients with TMJ problems or TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) may experience symptoms ranging from mild jaw soreness to a debilitating loss of jaw movement. Our goal at Gramercy Dental Center is to relieve your jaw or facial discomfort and provide a long-term solution by giving you the proper dental treatment to restore your jaw health.

There are several reasons why people suffer from TMJ issues, so a detailed diagnosis and customized treatment plan is necessary. While many patients develop TMD as a result of their teeth grinding habit, others suffer excessive jaw strain due to an acute injury, poor jaw alignment or arthritis. Regardless of the cause, you can trust our skilled dental team to deliver effective jaw pain relief in a comfortable environment. We know that by treating your persistent TMJ problems, we are also improving your quality of life.

Jaw Pain, Facial Pain Relief!

An accurate diagnosis is critical to an effective treatment plan for your jaw pain. However, it is first helpful to recognize the symptoms of TMJ problems and TMD so that you know if you need to see a dentist.

If you are experiencing one or more of the following TMJ symptoms, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with a jaw pain specialist at Gramercy Dental Center:

  • Pain, achiness or tenderness in your face, jaw or neck
  • Ear pain, especially when you open your mouth wide
  • Tension headaches
  • Jaw stiffness or feeling locked
  • Popping, clicking or grinding noises in the jaw joint
  • A feeling that your upper and lower bite aren’t fitting together correctly
  • Swelling on the side(s) of your face

Are you tired of living with jaw pain? Are your TMJ issues compromising your ability to eat comfortably? Contact Gramercy Dental Center today.
