Our TMJ Treatment Philosophy At New York
TMJ & Orofacial Pain

To design the best treatment for TMJ for you, we need to understand who you are as a person. Therefore, our relationship starts with a conversation, and this conversation serves as our guide as we figure out what type of TMJ treatment in NYC will be successful for you.

Is There A TMJ/TMD Cure?

Before we discuss whether a TMD specialist can provide a TMD cure, let’s clear up some of the confusion around the terms TMJ and TMD:

TMJ stands for your temporomandibular joints, which are the hinges in front of your ears that enable you to move your jaw. When your jaw joints and the structures surrounding them become sprained, strained, inflamed, or fatigued, the result can be TMDtemporomandibular dysfunction or temporomandibular disorder. Most people use the term TMJ to describe TMD, so we do, too.

So, can you expect TMJ treatment in NYC to be a TMD cure? No. TMJ is not a disease – it’s a condition that typically occurs as a result of trauma, bruxism, jaw over-use behaviors, life tensions, hormonal changes, and unstable bites, amongst others.

You, the patient, are the key to recovering and maintaining the positive outcomes of TMJ treatment. We will help you identify what is causing your jaw problems, and we’ll take measures to ease your pain and discomfort. Then we will design a strategy aimed at guiding you to reduce or eliminate the risk factors that caused your jaw problems in the first place.

So, while we can’t promise you a TMD cure, we can promise you we will do everything in our power to reduce your suffering and help you feel better and stay better. Call 888-560-6674 to make an appointment.
