TMJ/TMD Expert in Yorktown Heights, NY
If you suffer from frequent headaches, neck pain, or jaw pain, it could be a side-effect of a solvable problem. Many people experience these symptoms, and simply take over-the-counter pain medication to subside or reduce the pain. However, for many people, these symptoms are caused by a misaligned bite, jaw, or habit of grinding teeth. Best of all, there is a solution for general relief from our TMJ/TMD expert in Yorktown Heights, NY.
What Is TMJ?
Temporomandibular Joint Disorders, or TMD, is a painful disorder caused by stress in the joint that connects your jaws, allowing them to open and close when you speak or chew. Stress on this joint causes general discomfort or even extreme pain. You may have been suffering from it for years or recently acquired it as a result of an injury or accident.
How Can I Get Help for TMJ?
There are many treatment options for getting help with TMD. Some combat the pain with pain killers, while others rely on nerve stimulation therapy. However, there is another option that also improves your dental health and self-confidence. The Center For Holistic Dentistry offers treatment for TMD through the use of alternative therapies. Dr. Lerner uses Acupuncture, Applied Kinesiology, and Cranial Sacral Therapy to align your bite, as well as your jaw, and correct the disorder. We prefer a long-term solution to your chronic TMD pain, rather than a short-term fix. To see if you are a good candidate for TMJ treatment, contact us today!
