TMJ Relief Treatment
Common symptoms include headaches, cold sensitive teeth, pain in or around the ear, tenderness of the jaw, and clicking or popping noises when opening the mouth. These symptoms are commonly referred to as TMJ, or more accurately as temporal mandibular joint dysfunction.
People who suffer from these symptoms have found relief with treatment offered by Dr. Rubinstein. It is our goal to achieve maximum improvement with comfort and normal function, while using the least invasive and conservative treatment possible. For some patients, the ideal can be achieved, while for others, depending on the nature and stage of the illness, effective management is the maximum goal. Depending on the nature and severity of an individual patient’s condition, the appropriate therapy is determined. For some, a night guard designed to relax muscles and reduce inflammation is used. For others, more comprehensive diagnostics and dental restorations are needed.
