What is Temporomandibular Joint Disorder?
The temporomandibular joint is like a sliding hinge that connects the jawbone to the skull. When this joint is not sliding as it should, you can experience pain in your jaws and surrounding muscles. Other signs of temporomandibular joint disorder include:
- Pain in the jaw joint
- Shoulder, neck, and back pain
- Limited jaw mobility
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- Jaw clicking or popping
Tekscan Technology for Occlusal Correction
The T-Scan™ system enables Dr. Narkhede to perform state-of-the-art bite adjustments to help prevent TMJ. T-Scan™ provides precise digital occlusal analysis, locating premature contacts–places in your bite that touch sooner than they should–to help Dr. Narkhede adjust your bite efficiently and accurately.
Dr. Narkhede uses nonsurgical solutions to treat TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders, especially the orofacial pain associated with it. The injections often eliminate headaches that result from teeth grinding.
