Do you live with daily jaw pain, perhaps even missing out on social events, taking time away from work or avoiding the activities and foods you love? Pain, discomfort and problems surrounding the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are referred to as Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD), and can certainly interfere with your comfort and quality of living. Let Dr. Jignesh Patel relieve your TMD symptoms and get you back to enjoying life.
TMD is a collection of disorders or dysfunction impacting the jaw joints, surrounding muscles, supporting ligaments and other associated tissues. Symptoms can range from mild to excruciating, and often include:
Teeth grinding is a habit known to contribute to TMD and associated discomfort, but it also wears down the chewing surfaces of your teeth. This ultimately impacts how they fit together, creating an unevenness between the upper and lower arches that further perpetuates TMJ-related symptoms. Dr. Patel can perform an occlusal adjustment procedure to eliminate chewing surface discrepancies, returning harmony to your biting function and providing relief from your jaw joint pain.
Dr. Patel puts his passion, energy and 19 years of practice experience behind every avenue of patient care. If you or a family member suffers with TMJ pain and discomfort, let our expert help get you out of pain and on to living a healthy, happy life. Contact our Schaumburg office today and reserve your TMD consultation with Dr. Patel.
Whether mild or severe, TMD pain and symptoms interfere with daily living, function and general wellness. See how our patients are overcoming their TMJ problems with help from Dr. Patel.Patient Testimonials Request Appointment
