TMJ (Temporal Mandibular Joint Pain) in Miami Lakes

Symptoms of TMJ Disorders

Patients who have been afflicted with TMJ disorders experience the following:

  • Aching pain in and around the ears
  • Tenderness or pain in the jaw
  • Pain in the face
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Ringing in the ear
  • Chronic headaches
  • Sore muscles in the neck or head
  • Clicking sound in the jaw
  • Locking of the joint in your jaw, preventing you from opening or closing your mouth fully

If you have any of these symptoms, it’s imperative that you seek treatment right away. The first step involves an oral examination. If it’s discovered that the jaw joint is the cause of the problem, we can use a special device to further evaluate your jaw joints and muscles. The expert diagnosis of our dentist is based on a neuromuscular method, focusing on the nerves and muscles supporting the jaw. That’s because the usual cause of TMJ disorders is often muscular in nature.

Treatment of TMD

Neuromuscular dentistry aims to find the best resting position for the jaw in order to fix any problems with alignment. We use a combination of orthodontic procedures, dental restorations and orthotic devices to ensure your jaw and bite are in their proper position. Doing so will alleviate the stress on the muscles in your jaw and eventually get rid of the painful symptoms of TMJ disorders.

Most TMJ disorders are treatable and simple cases will only require the use of cold and hot compress as well as anti-inflammatory medications. However, more complex forms of TMJ will need several weeks or even months of treatment using the aforementioned approaches. Sometimes, dentists will require the patient to wear braces and even crowns and veneers.

I've been coming here since February 2013 and before I found this office I didn't feel as comfortable as I feel everytime I come here. The whole staff is excellent! They're friendly and professional. Dr. Gherbali is amazing, I don't change her for anything. I don't live close to the office yet I still come because simply is just worth it.
