TMJ/TMD Treatment

TMJ and TMD Treatment

“It’s all about finding the calm in the chaos.” ~ Donna Karan

Roughly 15 percent of the general population suffers from the symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMJ or TMD. In some cases, the headaches and jaw pain caused by TMJ/TMD can be eliminated with over-the-counter pain relievers. Nightguards may also be recommended to keep your teeth from grinding while you sleep because teeth grinding will put extra strain on your temporomandibular joint, leading to the inflammation and muscle fatigue that induces pain. Exercises and relaxation techniques may help alleviate your discomfort as well but even when these remedies are ineffective, other options are available.

If you happen to be among the group pf TMD-sufferers, you can find relief at Les Belles NYC with general dentistry. Once the source of your discomfort has been diagnosed as being TMJ/TMD, a suitable treatment plan will be created to help eliminate the pain.

    Very friendly staff - no wait time at all; Dr. Huang was very friendly and informative, walking me through everything in layman' s terms. Lastly, office is centrally located, right next to Grand Central Station and very accommodating in terms of available hours.

    The most pleasant dentist visit i have had to date. Short wait times, super friendly staff, pleasant and clean looking office overall. Dr Huang sat down and thoroughly examined my teeth and explained my xrays and any questions i had. Cleaning was thorough and painless(have never been able to tolerate the cleanings before). Overall great dentist experience. Definetely recommend to everyone and anyone.

    My visit to Dr. Huang's office could not have gone smoother! She and the entire staff are incredibly friendly. She really does care about her patients - she took the time to explain my xrays to me, giving me care tips and warnings along the way. Most dentists scrape your teeth until they bleed and then herd you out the door. Also, they're open on Sundays which is a HUGE win for those of us with demanding jobs.

    I waited less than 5 minutes to be seen by Dr. Huang which never happens. She was really nice, thorough in her examination, and made me feel really comfortable. She was able to answer all of my questions and addressed a problem I was having that was never previously acknowledged by my former dentists.
