Dr. Vickie Greenberg has dedicated much of her career to combating TMJ and Jaw Pain using non-surgical and non-invasive orthodontic techniques. No one should have to live with chronic pain, so if you suffer from TMJ or Jaw Pain, read on to learn more about Dr. Greenbergs holistic approach to treating it.
What exactly is TMJ?
TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint, and “TMJ” typically refers to pain within that joint. The pain can be caused by a variety of things; injury, teeth-grinding, age, arthritis, and even stress can lead to TMJ.
Regardless of what exactly causes the pain, it can be debilitating. The TMJ is a joint that acts as a sliding hinge between the jaw and the skull. Pain here can hinder chewing, speaking, yawning, and even taking deep breaths.
Some people may experience earaches, headaches, or popping sounds in the ears. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, and have yet to determine the cause, you may be suffering TMJ Syndrome, or TMD (Temporomandibular Disorder).
How Can You Treat TMJ?
The first step towards treatment is accurately diagnosing your TMJ. Dr. Greenberg prefers a “less is best” approach in her practice, and avoids surgery and other invasive procedures whenever possible. If you do have a TMJ diagnosis, or think you may, Dr. Greenberg will go out of her way to treat you effectively without invasive techniques.
Many cases of TMJ require the use of Dentofacial orthodontic devices, which will help to realign a misaligned jaw bite, or reposition teeth that are contributing to that misalignment.
Dr. Greenberg has over 25 years of experience in dentofacial orthodontics, and uses her compassion and empathy to put even the most anxious of patients at ease.
