TMJ & TMD Treatment

Do you suffer from chronic tension headaches? Your solution may be with your dentist for general dentistry.

At Atlantic Dental Partners, we understand how disruptive TMJ symptoms can be and how much it can impact your quality of life. Therefore, our dentists are uniquely trained to offer the most proven treatments for TMJ & TMD in our Malden and Jamaica Plain dental offices. You can trust that we bring extensive knowledge and cutting-edge technology when addressing your oral health, which includes any jaw-related issues you may be suffering from.

Get an Accurate Diagnosis

Our TMJ treatments can provide effective and lasting relief from your headaches and other jaw symptoms. In many cases, TMD can be treated using an oral appliance. This may include a nighttime mouth guard to prevent teeth grinding and jaw clenching, as these are primary causes of TMD because they lead to unnecessary strain on the jaw muscles. Regardless of the severity of your jaw symptoms, you can trust that we will conduct the necessary tests to determine the cause before making a diagnosis. In fact, an accurate diagnosis is critical to the success of your TMJ treatment.

When seeking treatment for your TMD, you can expect to receive personalized care in a warm, relaxing office environment. Since we treat our patients like family, you’ll find a number of comfort amenities throughout our office and a staff who is friendly and compassionate at every step.
