Jaw/TMJ

 
Also known as "TMJ Syndrome", TMJ affects the temporomandibular joint located near the ear where the lower and upper jaw meets. As one of the most frequently used joints in the body, it is used for talking, chewing, biting, yawning, along with any such action which involves closing and opening of the mouth.
 
The reasons for these disorders are as numerous as its symptoms which may include stiffness, headaches, dizziness, facial pain, ear pain, problems with bite, ringing in the ear, clicking or popping sounds, limited opening of the mouth and even a locked jaw. Misalignment of teeth, teeth grinding, stress, trauma to the jaw, habitual nail biting, or chewing gum are some of the most common causes of "TMJ Syndrome".
 
While there are numerous treatment options available today for TMJ disorders experienced dentists at Cosmetic Dentistry NYC will prescribe the most effective treatment option after studying the cause of the problem, how old the problem is and extent of its severity etc. In case the problem is caused by misalignment of teeth, we offer corrective dental therapies to properly align the teeth such as orthodontics, adjustments of crowns or bridges, or even referral for surgery depending on the severity of the problem.
