Smooth, pain-free jaw motion relies on the healthy function of the temporomandibular joints (TMJ). These joints are small in size but can cause big problems when they don't function properly. Headaches, jaw-clicking, and unexplained pain in the face, neck, jaw, and shoulder are just a few of the symptoms of TMJ Disorder, or TMD. As an LVI dentist, Dr. David Crescenzo alleviates TMD pain and improves jaw function with customized, non-surgical therapies.
TMD has many causes. Physical or emotional stress, a misaligned bite, and trauma can disrupt healthy TMJ function and result in pressure, discomfort, and even migraine headaches. In fact, headaches are one of the most common symptoms of TMD.
At your comprehensive exam, Dr. Crescenzo will examine your mouth and evaluate your TMJ function. He'll pinpoint the source of your TMD and tailor a treatment plan to eliminate your distress. You may be one of the many TMD suffers who finds relief with a custom-fitted mouthguard that optimizes jaw alignment to let stressed muscles and joints heal. We'll assess your unique situation and deliver the targeted treatment you need and deserve!
