The TMJ (or temporomandibular joint) is the jaw joint that connects the lower jaw with the skull. When it becomes stressed or unbalanced many problems arise, including:
- Headaches or migraines
- Clicking or popping in the jaw joint
- Muscle pain in the face, neck or upper back
- Tingling fingertips
- Tooth wear or grinding
- And more
Dr. Martin and Dr. Ferraiolo believe in a holistic, neuromuscular approach to resolving TMD – temporomandibular joint disorder, for patients in Totowa and Wayne. The way the jaws, muscles and teeth work together is vital for your comfort, dental health and so much more.
At our North Jersey office, we treatment for TMJ for the Wayne area and Totowa with equipment such as K7 and TENS. These tools accurately record jaw positions and muscle activity and provide electrical stimulation to relax muscles into comfortable positions. With these tools, Dr. Martin and Dr. Ferraiolo can treat the root cause of TMD by using a dental orthotic. For extreme headaches, Dr. Martin can even relax facial muscles with Botox.
