What is TMJ therapy?
The TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is the place where your jaw attaches to your skull to allow you to open your jaw smoothly. Sometimes the TMJ is damaged or injured, causing a painful condition known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction or disorder (TMD). If you're having pain or hearing sounds when you open your jaw, schedule an appointment with our professionals at Madison Avenue Dentists to determine if you have TMD. In our New York, NY office, we use innovative tools to diagnose and care for your TMD to relieve symptoms. Your TMJ therapy will be dependent on the cause of your TMD and your specific condition, but a few options include oral appliances (night guards or mouth guards), bite modification, dental restorations, and more.
Who is a good candidate for TMJ therapy?
Temporomandibular joint disorder may be brought about by an injury to the jaw, chronic grinding of your teeth and clenching your jaw (bruxism), or dental malocclusion (misalignment of the teeth). Other conditions that can result in TMD include a tumor in the temporomandibular joint or arthritis. Sometimes the cause of TMD cannot be determined, but if you're experiencing symptoms and signs, our team at Madison Avenue Dentists can diagnose and treat your jaw. A few of the most common symptoms of TMD include:
- Tenderness or pain at the temporomandibular joint
- Spasms in your facial muscles
- Feeling as if your jaw is rigid or stuck
- Frequent headaches that start around your ears
- Hearing clicking, cracking, or popping whenever you use your jaw

WOW!! So, I did a dental search on the best Prosthodontist offices in New York City, and it gives me great joy to see my two outstanding colleagues be on the top. I had the honor of graduating with Dr. Oh and Dr. Estefan from New York University College of Dentistry. I have an Endodontic practice in upstate New York, and now I have an office that has the best quality Prosthodontist to send some of our New York City patients for dental care. Congratulations on such an outstanding achievement, you guys make our dental school so proud. xo Dr. Luz Mejia (Bailey). PS I wish I can give you guys +10 stars!!
