If you’re living in the North Jersey area, TMD pain relief could be more attainable than you ever thought was possible. Do you regularly suffer from the pain and discomfort associated with any of these conditions?
Clicking or popping of the jaw experienced when chewing or yawning.
Aching pain in and around your ear.
Discomfort experienced when chewing.
Dizziness and a ringing in your ear.
Pain or tenderness in the jaw.
Limited ability to open or close your mouth.
If you answered “yes” to any of these conditions, you could be experiencing the side-effects of TMD (temporomandibular disorder). This condition can occur as a result of problems with the jaw, the jaw joint, and the surrounding facial muscles that control the jaws movement.
There are a number of factors that can lead to your development of TMD, and therefore it’s vital to properly diagnose what areas need specific attention and treatment. That’s why we utilize the highly sophisticated K7 Evaluation System for the diagnosis and treatment of jaw disorders. This modern method of diagnosis involves 3 vital steps for measuring, displaying and storing objective data. These steps include:
Step #1: Mandibular Scanning—multiple sensors measure and provide an exact 3-D display of how your jaw moves, along with the speed at which it opens and closes.
Step #2: Electromyography—Bipolar surface electrodes record the electrical impulses emitted by your jaw muscles at rest or when in use. This electromyogram (EMG) data can be taken from up to eight muscle sites simultaneously and in real time, providing vital information for diagnosis and treatment.
Step #3 Electrosonography—highly sensitive vibration transducers are placed over each Temporomandibular joint (TMJ), analyzing any clicking and grinding sounds emanating during the opening and closing of your mouth.
After these non-invasive steps are completed, we’ll compile and review the data to diagnose the specific areas of concern. Then we’ll discuss with you a recommended treatment program to bring you the much needed TMD pain relief you desire.
