Why Let TMJ Pain or Disorder Rule Your Life?

TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders (TMD) are more than mere annoyances. They can cause chronic pain, headaches and limit your jaw mobility. Jaw joint pain can be caused by stresses on the jaw muscles. It is sometimes caused after the extraction of a wisdom tooth or implementation of a molar implant. Just to name a couple but it is not limited to only these reasons. While relaxation techniques and muscle relaxants can help aide in some way, it is not a more permanent solution. Your dentist can provide you with alternative options for temporomandibular disorder.

If you have been dealing with chronic jaw pain caused by TMD, call our dental office immediately. Dr. Jeffrey Suffoletta is skilled in detecting and treating problems with TMJ and has extensive experience helping patients move past the pain safely and reliably.

Could You Be Suffering From TMJ?

The temporomandibular joints connect your jawbone to the bones in your skull. When these joint dysfunction, TMD can develop, causing chronic pain. Many people with TMJ never realize that their problems are symptoms of a larger condition. Some physical symptoms of TMJ Dysfunction can be detected by the following.

  • Jaw pain that radiates into the head, neck and/or shoulders.
  • Jaw clicking when speaking, yawning or eating.
  • Jaw “sticking”, especially when the mouth is opened wide.
  • Regular headaches, including migraines.
  • Jaw discomfort that is worse after sleeping.
TMJ Pain Treatment For Your Lifestyle

Advanced, Personalized TMD Treatments Based on Your Lifestyle

TMD can develop from a number of reasons, including heredity, teeth grinding or trauma, and should be addressed. Our practice offers customized TMD treatments based on your history, lifestyle and needs. After a thorough examination, Dr. Suffoletta may recommend:

  • Occlusal adjustment. This in-office treatment reduces the stress on your jaw by reshaping the surfaces of the teeth, to promote correct bite alignment.
  • Home remedies. Home-based exercises can help you lessen your TMJ symptoms.
  • Therapy. Sometimes, therapeutic approaches allow you to retrain your jaw bone.
  • Bruxism treatments. If you grind your teeth, you may find relief from TMJ pain with a dental appliance worn at night.
  • Skin fillers are a great way to easily and painlessly get immediate relief from temporomandibular disorder. Ask us how filler can help you.

If you're looking for a dentist and dental team that provides exceptional and friendly service I highly recommend Dr.... Suffoletta & Karah (dental hygienist)! First, I'll tell you about his front office staff who are professional, welcoming and kind. From scheduling, explaining insurance benefits, and coming into the office they are very friendly and knowledgeable in handling everything. It is nice to speak with Joanne and Nicky because they are diligent in finding answers to any questions that I have, and they really take the time with their explanations. When you enter their office for your appointment the staff has always been very welcoming to my family and me. I love that they offer something to drink when I arrive. My dental hygienist, Karah, is absolutely caring, gentle, and always provides the best education when it comes to dental health. I really look forward to my cleaning visits with her. She is a master of her craft, but is so gentle at the same time. I had one bad experience years ago with a hygienist at another practice, and after that horrible experience this is why I felt like I struck gold when I met Karah. I have been her patient ever since! Karah is one of the reasons why I have become more diligent about my dental health. She gives great education, support, and encouragement, which I feel is essential in remembering to maintain healthy dental habits at home & until your next visit. Dr. Suffoletta is a great dentist, and I say this based on his professionalism, his positive attitude, and caring demeanor when you meet him. I could tell that he tries to get to know his patients by the way he spoke with me and my daughter, and asked about our family & our hobbies. It’s nice to have a dentist who is interested in your life beyond your teeth & gums! I was suffering from sensitivity in my gums; specifically in one area where I had a filling by another dentist at a completely different practice. The sensitivity that I was experiencing prior to meeting Dr. Suffoletta was so unbearable that drinking and eating foods was not enjoyable. Even breathing or laughing was unbearable because once air touched my gums I could feel the pain from the sensitivity! The other dentist said that there wasn’t anything he could do. I was so disgusted that it seemed like he didn’t care, and that I would have to live with this sensitivity for the rest of my life!! Dr. Suffoletta re-did the filling, and he explained everything that he was doing, and based on the x-rays explained what was causing my sensitivity. He also provided great education to maintain healthy gums and teeth. Ever since Dr. Suffoletta treated me I have not had any sensitivity or issues with my gums or teeth!! For that, I am truly grateful!read more

I work in the medical field and the first thing I look at is the cleanliness of the space, it’s impeccable! The... staff anticipates your arrival, greets you by name, keeps you informed of next step in the process. It’s easy to be in an office for a lengthy amount of time when you know exactly what you’re waiting for and next steps in the process. The entire staff is super friendly and every time they come near you they introduce themselves.read more
