Treat TMJ Pain With a Health-Centered Wellness Approach
Unlike some dentists who simply look at your jaw and ask you a few questions, Dr. David DiGiallorenzo diagnoses a TMJ disorder by combining cone beam technology with a bite evaluation, a neuromuscular evaluation, a vapor coolant diagnosis, and thermography to give you an accurate diagnosis.
Once we know what your needs are, we can begin planning your treatment. That might include a combination of the treatments listed below:
- Orthotic appliance
- Nutritional supplements
- Vapor coolant sprays
- Massage therapy
- Laser biostimulation
- Cervical alignment
- Muscle relaxants
- Tooth replacement therapy
TMJ Symptoms Indicate a Problem
No one wants to face a life of daily discomfort, but for patients with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), that’s exactly what life may be like. The most common symptoms of TMD include headaches, migraines, earaches, and pain in your neck, shoulders, or back. Other symptoms include:
- Clicking or popping jaw
- Reduced jaw functionality
- Jaw pain
- Facial pain
- Difficulty chewing or biting
If you think you may have TMD, or if you’ve recently been diagnosed with it, you should know you don’t have to live the rest of your life with your uncomfortable symptoms. Relief is possible. To get TMJ treatment, call the LANAP and Implant Center at 610-228-4366. We can also stop your teeth grinding habit.
