Are you one of the many Ann Arbor TMJ sufferers? If you are affected by Temporomandibular Joint pain or TMJ disorder, you know how the pain and discomfort can impact your life. Gary Sasaki DDS, MS has helped countless grateful Ann Arbor patients manage their TMJ disorder.
The Temporomandibular or jaw joint connects the lower jaw bone to the skull. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include jaw and facial pain, headaches, earaches, neck pain and chewing difficulty. TMJ disorder is often associated with jaw clicking, locking or clenching, and can cause tooth damage and bone loss.
Many Belleville, Saline and Plymouth TMJ patients first sought a possible TMJ diagnosis after trying unsuccessfully to relieve their frequent headaches. Dr. Gary Sasaki has discovered that many people do not realize they have TMJ disorder because it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what is causing the pain. A dentist with advanced education in TMJ therapy can properly diagnose your specific TMJ issues and recommend an effective course of action.
Sometimes a comprehensive treatment plan is most successful, we will then work hand-in-hand with a network including ENT doctors, neurologists and physical therapists. There are many facets to this often misunderstood disorder. If you are suffering from jaw pain, we recommend a consultation with Dr. Gary Sasaki at The Dental Spa in Ypsilanti, MI.
