The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is an important part of your anatomy. The hinge that joins your lower jaw to the upper part of your skull makes it possible for you to enjoy your favorite foods, participate in a conversation with friends, and can have a broad impact on your daily life when it suffers from dysfunction. At Koala Center for Sleep Disorders, our TMJ doctors are proud to offer exceptional and minimally invasive treatment options for patients in the Jackson Heights area suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMD.
The symptoms of TMD can have broad implications throughout a person’s upper body. In addition to clicking or pain in the area of their jaw, tension in their neck and head, persistent headaches, trouble swallowing, tinnitus, congestion, and even anxiety have been reported by patients with TMJ disorder. Many people who have TMJ will also experience sleeplessness caused by the persistent pain and discomfort caused by the dysfunction in their temporomandibular joint. While these symptoms sometimes resolve on their own, many people will require medical intervention in order to find relief.
At Koala Center for Sleep Disorders in Jackson Heights, our TMJ doctors have a wide range of experience working with patients who have TMJ. We provide personalized consultations to discuss treatment options for every individual that we see and are proud to offer free consultations to potential patients, so they can be confident in their choice to pursue TMD treatment with us. Our experienced dental staff provide unsurpassed care and understanding that has been cultivated through extensive training and dedication to the treatment of TMJ symptoms. While many other doctors may simply reach for a prescription pad to address the pain that a person with TMD experiences, we believe that healing the underlying issue is a better approach to care.
Using a TENS unit, our TMJ doctors are able to better understand the natural resting position of your jaw consistent with your unique anatomy. We can then use that information to implement a customized treatment plan that utilizes a neuromuscular orthotic device to help your jaw and facial muscles rest more naturally and find release from tension caused by their dysfunction. Our devices are designed for each unique patient, making them as comfortable as possible to wear. For many patients, these devices are the answer they need to find true relief from their TMJ symptoms.
For some patients, more extensive measures including dental implants or long-term orthotics may be necessary. Some patients may even require surgery to treat their TMJ, though this should always be considered a last resort. At Koala Center for Sleep Disorders, our experienced TMJ doctors are proud to offer comprehensive treatment solutions for TMJ patients and promise to work with you on a personal basis to help you fully understand your options and decide on the course of treatment that is right for you.
