Enjoy Every Day of Your Life With TMJ Pain Relief

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.

A Common Condition, TMD Can Be Debilitating

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:

  • Pain in the jaw, face, neck, shoulders or upper back
  • Tooth pain or soreness
  • Earaches or tinnitus (ringing in the ear)
  • Clicking, popping or grinding when engaging the jaw
  • Lower jaw locking in position
  • Difficulty opening, closing or chewing
  • Chronic headaches

Teeth Grinding and the Health of Your TMJ

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.

One Patient's Thoughts on SDS

We saw Dr. Patel's picture and his staff in one of those clipper's magazines. There was just something about the picture that just brought you in. We made an appointment and came, and the rest is history. He's just the most warm, genuine person. He makes you feel good — his staff makes you like you're the only one here. He never makes you feel rushed. He never makes you feel uncomfortable. In one word, he's the best.
