Migraine headaches…jaw-clicking…unexplained facial, neck, shoulder or jaw pain…. These are just a few of the symptoms of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Dr. Naik provides custom therapies to alleviate TMJ-related distress and restore comfortable function.
Smooth jaw motion depends upon two small joints in front of your ears – the TMJs. Stress, bruxism (teeth grinding), a misaligned bite, or a host of other factors can aggravate these joints and cause pain and pressure. Dr. Naik will examine your teeth and jaw to determine the source of your discomfort. She may suggest a custom-fitted mouthguard to ease tense jaw muscles and encourage optimal jaw placement. If a misaligned bite is the cause of your TMJ disorder, Dr. Naik can build up the surface of chewing teeth to restore alignment and alleviate symptoms. Your smile is unique, and we'll help you determine the right therapy for your situation.
