Experience Comprehensive and Compassionate Treatment in the Philadelphia area
TMJ is short for temporomandibular joints, which connect your lower jaw to your skull as well as interact with various complex blood vessels, nerves, and bones. Although they’re small, even a slight misalignment can cause extreme pain and other frustrating side effects. That’s where TMJ therapy comes in!
TMJ therapy will begin at either our Collegeville or Williamsport office with a thorough consultation and diagnosis. Dr. DiGiallorenzo or a member of his team will use revolutionary cone beam technology to provide an accurate diagnosis of your unique situation. Once we know what your needs are as our patient, we can provide care! Here are the various methods and services we use to provide TMJ dysfunction relief:
