TMJ & Dental Appliances

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is associated with disorders that commonly cause patients pain and discomfort in the head, neck, and jaw areas. Through proper diagnosis and treatment focusing on the root of the cause, Dr. Smolyar and his team can help you prevent, protect and correct dental issues associated with TMJ disorders.

Are you suffering from teeth clenching, teeth grinding, headaches or migraines? Many times, headaches and migraines are related to TMJ, misalignment of teeth or head and neck muscles and bruxism. A comprehensive evaluation can help determine if a custom appliance or alternative course of treatment, such as Botox or physical therapy, is the appropriate solution for you.

Sleep Medicine involves the treatment and diagnosis of sleep apnea and other sleep-related disorders. If you snore or have trouble sleeping, a comprehensive diagnostic assessment can help determine if sleep appliances are right for you.
