Get Relief From Jaw Pain With TMJ Treatment in South Williamsport
A TMJ disorder can cause pain in your jaw and many other areas, including your face, neck, ears, and shoulders. At the LANAP and Implant Center, we use an integrative approach to TMJ treatment to relieve your pain. Our treatment usually involves a custom-made oral appliance that corrects your bite and stops teeth grinding, a habit that not only contributes to TMJ pain but can damage your teeth.
After undergoing treatment, you’ll be able to:
- Get relief from TMJ pain
- Regain the full use of your jaw
- Avoid dental damage caused by teeth grinding (bruxism)
To relieve your TMJ pain, call the LANAP and Implant Center at 570-433-8019.
Take a Complete Wellness Approach to Treating Your TMJ Disorder
Many dentists do no more than examine your jaw and ask a few questions before making a diagnosis of TMJ disorder. Dr. David DiGiallorenzo uses sophisticated technology like our cone beam technology and thermography to accurately diagnose the cause of your pain. You’ll likely receive a bite evaluation, a neuromuscular evaluation, and a vapor coolant diagnosis, among other tests.
This thorough evaluation also helps him offer the correct treatment recommendations. Unlike many other dentists, we help you address underlying causes of a TMD, like stress. Your personalized treatment plan will likely include a custom-made orthotic appliance to relieve tension on your jaw. We may also recommend:
- Nutritional supplements
- Vapor coolant sprays
- Massage therapy
- Laser biostimulation
- Cervical alignment
- Muscle relaxants
- Replacement of missing teeth
You won’t need referrals to outside providers for these services. We offer them right in our office or at The Wellness Center, a facility where you can receive a wide variety of holistic treatments.
