Comprehensive diagnostics and noninvasive treatment relieve TMJ symptoms in Wake Forest

diagnostics and noninvasive treatment relieve TMJ symptoms

Effective treatment of migraines, tinnitus, facial pain, and other disruptive symptoms related to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) starts at your trusted dentist in Wake Forest, Dr. Edmond Suh. In fact, hundreds of patients through the years have found such relief from the doctor’s customized, non-surgical treatment that they have been taken off of long-term prescription pain medication for good.

 

Dr. Suh sees many patients with disorders of this joint, which connects the jaw to the skull. His depth of experience has enabled the doctor to identify and refine tools and techniques for effective TMJ treatment.

 

Unlike other dentists who offer TMJ treatment, Dr. Suh leverages the latest proven technology, the K7 Evaluation System, to accurately diagnose and assess the true nature of your condition.

 

The assessment process includes:

  • Tracking the position of the jaw and surrounding muscles
  • Analyzing jaw imbalances
  • Measuring bite forces
  • Pinpointing the exact location of imbalances

The doctor will discuss your past history of headaches, migraines, and other troubling symptoms. He may identify or rule out past trauma as the cause of headaches during consultation.

 

Scans, exams, and questionnaires allow the dental team to know the optimal, position for your bite. There is no guessing here! With an understanding of your condition, and the ideal position for optimal function, Dr. Suh will develop a treatment plan tailored around your specific needs.

 

These next-generation tools don’t rely on injections or medications. Conventional approaches to TMJ care are associated with numerous unwanted side effects. Plus, they may only relieve the symptoms produced by imbalances, which means they don’t actually treat the cause of TMJ dysfunction.

 

Dr. Suh does not use invasive or extreme surgical approaches. You can get lasting resolution of TMJ-related problems without taking drastic, high-risk measures. Some of these non-invasive alternatives include:

  • Development of an oral appliance, customized to align your jaws
  • Use of modern, unobtrusive orthodontics such as Invisalign
  • Massage, manual manipulation of trigger points
  • Lifestyle guidance, such as nutrition and stress management techniques

You can find relief from TMJ-related pain at the dentist’s office with superior technologies and treatments that actually identify and address the cause of these chronic and often debilitating conditions. Call 919 556 6200 to schedule a comprehensive evaluation today.
