TMJ

Treat headaches, tooth aches, and facial pain

Do you have difficulty biting or chewing? Suffer frequent headaches, or experience face, neck, shoulder or tooth pain?

Temporomandibular Joint Disorders—often referred to as “TMJ”—encompass a wide range of problems with the jaw joint and its muscles. These disorders often go undiagnosed, causing symptoms that can include headaches, neck aches, tooth pain, ear stuffiness, clicking or locking of the jaw, painful chewing and chronic facial pain. Nonetheless, there is help for TMJ pain.

While TMJ is not a specialty that’s recognized by the American Dental Association, Dr. Kaplan is widely known for his expertise in treating the condition. He served as Director of The Mount Sinai Hospital’s TMJ and Facial Pain Clinic for over 14 years and has authored several books on the subject. If you believe you might be suffering from TMJ, he can help you pinpoint a diagnosis and determine the best course of treatment.
