TMD/TMJ

First, let’s clear up a misnomer.

Most of us have heard of TMJ and believe it to be a disorder of the jaw. That’s partially correct. TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint. There are two of these joints ( TMJs) — one on either side of the face working in harmony as the jaw moves up and down. However, the jaw disorders that we sometimes talk about are actually TMDs, or Temporomandibular Disorders. TMD, and the dysfunction that results, can produce significant pain and impairment. What causes TMD is not 100 percent clear. But it’s believed that symptoms develop when there are problems with the jaw muscles or the joints themselves. Nicosia Dental is skilled at diagnosing TMD and treating TMD.

  • Dr. Nicosia repaired a broken upper tooth by installation of a crown. The quality of his work is outstanding. The crown looks wonderful and is an excellent match to the color of the adjoining teeth, In addition it is a perfect fit to my bite. The dental operation was performed skillfully, with minimum time, and at short notice. The operation occurred during a single visit and involved zero pain. I very strongly recommend Dr. Nicosia.

  • I enjoy my visits to the Dentist now that I have Dr. Jenn! Dr. Jenn took me in when I had a cracked tooth. My regular dentist couldn't see me and a friend referred her. Wow, what a find! My hygienist is very thorough and gentle, everyone is happy and friendly,, I highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a long-term and stable practice to partner with!
