TMJ Disorder

The temporomandibular joints, also known as TMJ, are joints and muscles located on each side of the head in the jaw that make it possible for you to open and close your mouth. Each joint has a disc between the ball and socket, which acts as a cushion while allowing you to open, rotate or glide your jaw. Any problem that prevents this system from working properly may result in TMJ disorder, which can be a very painful condition. There are various causes of TMJ disorder including dislocation, arthritis, injury, stress/teeth grinding and tooth/jaw alignment.

Diagnosis is vital before treatment. Our examination will include checking the joints and muscles for clicking, popping, soreness or difficulty moving.

Various treatments are available including mouth guards, orthodontics, anti-inflammatory medications and exercises. We will work closely with you to determine the cause of your symptoms and the most appropriate treatment.

If you are suffering from jaw pain, popping or clicking, give our expert team a call today at (516) 366-1486 to schedule an appointment.
