If you suffer from the jaw pain and headaches of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, you are not alone. Between 5% and 12% of the population will experience TMJ related symptoms (NIH), such as:

  • Jaw pain and soreness
  • Difficulty opening or closing the jaw
  • Sore facial and neck muscles
  • Headaches, including migraines
  • Toothaches and difficulty chewing
  • Earaches and ringing in the ears

Dr. Atanase has extensive training and continuing education on treating TMJ related disorders with MLS Cold Laser Therapy and Oral Appliances that help to take the load off the strained joints. Sometimes your bite is causing the muscles of mastication and TMJ’s to get inflamed. Dr. Atanase can perform a quick and easy scan of your bite with a T-Scan. A JVA (or Joint Vibration Analysis) also gives Dr. Atanase clues as to the health and condition of your TMJ’s so that she can tailor the correct treatment modality for your special needs.
