Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD) affect millions of people each year in the United States. This disorder can limit the use of your jaw and mouth, can cause extreme discomfort, and can lead to excessive joint damage if it is not corrected. Because we all use our mouths to speak, eat, drink, smile, and breathe – it is important that the major joints that work the mouth are healthy and working properly. Group Health Dental serves the residents of Manhattan and New York City with expert TMD diagnosis and treatment. We understand that this condition can affect many different aspects of your day and can have a severe impact on your quality of life.
The dentists at Group Health Dental are experts at diagnosing and treating TMD. Problems such as frequent headaches, pain on one or both sides of the jaw, a popping or clicking sound when you eat or open and close the mouth, a ringing sensation in the ear, and dizziness are all symptoms that are commonly associated with TMD. After a thorough evaluations, our dentists will determine if your symptoms are being caused by TMD or another condition. If TMD is the culprit behind your discomfort, we offer a variety of treatments that can be used to alleviate your symptoms and to prevent them from reoccurring. We take the time to work with each patient on an individualized basis in order to find the treatment that will best suit your needs. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to our dentistry services because there is no one-size mouth and all conditions affect people differently.
