The temperomandibular joints (TMJ) connect your lower jaw to your skull. Many people suffer from chronic facial, jaw and neck pain as well as recurrent headaches and difficulty chewing. Often, these symptoms are the result of grinding or clenching of the teeth. Left untreated, the teeth, gums and boney structures of the mouth can be adversely affected. Dr. Bolamperti has completed extensive continuing education that allows him to provide his patients with non-surgical treatment options that can help relieve pain and prevent future problems. Often, these symptoms can be treated with a combination of bite adjustment and occlusal guard therapies.
