Temporomandibular Disorders

Dr. Ansari Provides Temporomandibular Disorder (TMJ) Treatment

“TMJ” or “TMD” is a non-specific, catch-all term for a variety of pain/dysfunction conditions of the head and neck.  Many of these conditions are quite common and might be simple or complex  to treat, depending on your individual circumstances.

The bite can be a factor in many types of these problems because there is a relationship between the teeth, jaw joints, head and neck muscles, and head posture.

Do you suffer from any of these?

  • Headaches
  • Jaw joint pain
  • Jaw joint noise or clicking
  • Limited mouth opening
  • Ear congestion
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Loose teeth
  • Clenching or grinding
  • Facial pain
  • Sensitive  teeth
  • Chewing difficulties
  • Neck pain
  • Postural problems
  • Tingling of the fingertips
  • Hot and cold sensitivity of teeth
  • Nervousness or insomnia

An imperfect bite often plays a significant role in these conditions and Dr. Ansari has experience in treating a bad bite.  We start by considering all the information gathered by taking your history and doing a physical examination of your teeth, head, and neck.  If it is found that your bite is a major contributing factor to your problem, we can help.  Give our office a call at 510-471-5521.
