Dr. Jamil Alkhoury of Brentwood Family Dental works with patients who have oral conditions such as TMJ disorder. Patients with TMD often experience pain in jaw joints, neck, and shoulders. This may be caused by misalignment of the bite or concurrent conditions such as bruxism. Dr. Alkhoury and his team encourage patients to learn about the benefits of treatment for TMD to improve their overall quality of life.

What is TMJ/TMD?

This condition is a malfunction of the temporomandibular joint. This is the joint that hinges the jaw so that it can open and close. When it is misaligned or malfunctioning, it results in poor bite alignment, bruxism, and unusual wear on natural teeth. Additionally, patients may experience pain and stress throughout the upper body.

Treatment options

At Brentwood Family Dental, Dr. Alkhoury provides a thorough and exact approach to treatment for TMJ/TMD. During the initial diagnosis, the team uses JVA, also known as Jaw Vibration Analysis, alongside CBCT cat scans.

Once it has been determined that TMJ disorder exists, treatment options are discussed. They may include:
  • A custom-fabricated oral appliance to be worn at night to keep jaw joints aligned.
  • Cold laser therapy to address pain often associated with this condition.

Dr. Alkhoury consults with patients to help them decide which treatment will best improve the condition.
