TMJ Treatment in Boca Raton, FL
TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, and when it is giving you trouble, it is consuming. When it is out of alignment or has muscle spasms, it can cause headaches, difficulty eating, sleeping, and other problems.
Are we TMJ Specialists?
There is no official designation in dentistry of TMJ specialists. So while we have a special interest in this treatment and have pursued extensive additional education to learn how to treat these disorders, it would not be accurate to any dentist, no matter how expert, a TMJ specialist, because legally, there is no such thing.
What Is the Cause of TMJ Disorder?
There are a number of things that can cause TMJ malfunction, including traumatic injury or bite discrepancy. One of the best ways to ensure a healthy temporomandibular joint is to have a balanced occlusion. If your teeth all meet harmoniously and your bite is balanced, your jaw will function smoothly and you should not have this kind of trouble. But if you have a missing tooth that has not been replaced, resulting in tipping of the adjacent teeth, or if you have crooked teeth and a crooked bite, or if you have had dental work placed that has not been properly harmonized with the rest of your teeth, it can provoke pain in this joint or in the associated muscles.
Recommended treatment for TMJ disorders covers a wide range. Sometimes all it takes is a simple appliance that you may wear at night to give your jaw rest. Sometimes it can involve what is called a full-mouth reconstruction, where all the teeth have to be restored in order to create a harmonious bite. We strongly favor the most conservative treatment that will work. This is our approach in all of our dentistry.
If you have jaw pain or headaches, clicking or other noises in your joint, or pain when you try to open your mouth, please come see us.
I absolutely LOVE this Dental office! Dr. A is the absolute best, very experienced, quick and genuinely cares about the comfortability of his patients. I wouldn't want anyone else to work on my teeth but him. His staff are all extremely kind and I always leave much better (mentally and physically) and cleaner than when I went in. I would absolutely recommend this place 100% of the time!! :)
I had to have my front tooth crown replaced because it was poorly done by a previous dentist
My new front crown is PERFECT! Dr A and the staff made sure I was completely satisfied and the tooth matches perfectly. This is very difficult to do with your front teeth
Highly recommend Dental Care! They also have very convenient office hours!
We moved from Seattle and were in need of a new dentist for our annual check up and found them online. They were great! My hygienist was AMAZING, she made sure I was comfortable during my visit and my cleaning, she explained everything to me.The Dr was great too. Definitely staying with them while we live in FL.
Very nice place and wonderful staff, I was always very well informed about every aspect of my treatment plan and they assisted me very well on some scheduling issues I had due to my time availability. The doctor was very knowledgeble and made me feel very confident and relaxed about my diagnostic and treatment.
So far I have been to the office twice and had a very good experience. I definitely recommend.
This morning I had a emergency I cracked my wisdom tooth and they were so friendly and welcoming to me I was a little bit nervous but as soon as I walked into the office they made me feel comfortable Dr.A rock it he did a great job everyone in the office was awesome and helped me out with everything!!!
