TMD Therapy: The Importance of Treating Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

  • June 23, 2014

Do you suffer from chronic jaw pain and frequent headaches? Perhaps you notice a popping sound from the joints near your ears when you chew food or yawn. These are common symptoms of a condition called temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD. For more than 20 years, Dr. David DiGiallorenzo has provided patients in Collegeville, PA and Williamsport, PA with relief from this debilitating disorder at LANAP & Implant Center of Pennsylvania.

Preventing Further Damage to the TMJ

The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) serves as a hinge that allows the jaw to open, close, and move from side to side. Patients with untreated TMJ disorder experience increased discomfort, pain, and stiffness in the muscles of the jaw, head, neck, shoulders, and back. Fortunately, personalized TMD therapy from Dr. DiGiallorenzo can help to alleviate these symptoms by addressing the underlying cause of the pain. TMD therapy addresses the following issues in patients suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder:

  • Tenderness in the face and neck caused by muscular problems in the jaw
  • Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears
  • A clicking sound that occurs with movement of the jaw
  • Inflammation and muscle fatigue
  • Limited mobility of the jaw
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Chronic headaches

With a treatment plan that is customized to suit your individual needs, Dr. DiGiallorenzo can help you rediscover how it feels to be pain-free every day, allowing you to enjoy life to the fullest once again.
