Dr. Jig Patel, Founder of Schaumburg Dental Studio, Offers Multi-Disciplinary Approach to TMJ Treatment

My personal goal is always to treat TMD non-invasively and non-surgically, as there have been no long-term clinical trials to study the safety or results of TMD surgery.

The respected dentists of Schaumburg Dental Studio offer patients in Schaumburg, IL relief from jaw pain through a variety of TMJ treatments. Pain and issues surrounding the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are referred to as temporomandibular disorders (TMD). These disorders not only cause jaw pain and discomfort, but they affect a person’s quality of life. Drs. Jig Patel, David Neumann, and Muizz Merchant offer multi-disciplinary TMJ treatments that bring relief to patients experiencing TMJ disorders.

Affecting approximately 12 percent of the population, TMD is a condition where an imbalance occurs between the muscles, bone, or nerves surrounding the TMJ. In some cases, the imbalance exists among all three. TMD can be caused by several factors including autoimmune disorders, infections, injuries to the jaw area, and various forms of arthritis. The pain can range from a dull ache to sharp shooting pain. Symptoms of TMD include:

  • Face, neck, shoulder, upper back, or jaw pain
  • Tooth pain or soreness
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ear) or earaches
  • Clicking, popping, or grinding when engaging the jaw
  • Lockjaw
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Chronic headaches

The Schaumburg Dental Studio dentists offer customized TMJ treatment, adjusted based on the severity of each case. In some situations, TMD can be resolved through simple exercises and stretches. In other cases, a night guard or occlusal therapy might be required to relieve the jaw pain and other symptoms. For more advanced cases, they offer crown and implant restorations, orthodontics treatments like Invisalign®, or occlusal adjustments. Each of these treatments help adjust or realign the bite and relieve undue stress on the joint.

No matter how severe the situation, the dentists at Schaumburg Dental Studio use the most conservative methods available. “My personal goal is always to treat TMD non-invasively and non-surgically, as there have been no long-term clinical trials to study the safety or results of TMD surgery,” Dr. Patel explains.
