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.
Dr. Martin is an excellent dentist, knowledgeable and a craftsman, explains well so that the patient can make an informed choice among the available options. He is surrounded by well-trained and competent assistants.
