TMJ Treatment in Fort Lee, NJ & Surrounding Area

Dr. Joel Singer offers advanced solutions for TMJ disorders to improve your oral health and function and eliminate pain and discomfort in your jaw. Our skilled dentist can accurately pinpoint the source of your pain to provide relief using the latest nonsurgical treatments.

The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is the joint that connects the lower jaw to the rest of the head. The term “TMJ” is often used to refer to TMJ disorder, also called TMD, which occurs when the jaw joint becomes stressed, injured or misaligned. TMD can be caused by several different factors, such as stress, bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching), arthritis in the TMJ, or trauma and injury to the head, neck or jaw.

If you suffer from frequent jaw pain, facial pain or pain around the ear, you may have a TMJ disorder. Additional symptoms of TMD include:

  • Grinding, clicking or popping sounds in the jaw when your mouth opens or closes
  • Inability to open your mouth wide to speak, yawn or chew
  • A jaw that is stuck or locks in place
  • Painful chewing and biting
  • Pain in the neck, shoulders or ears
  • Frequent headaches

There is a solution for these uncomfortable and often painful symptoms. We will recommend treatment based on the cause and severity of your particular TMJ disorder. Treatment may include jaw and facial relaxation exercises, lifestyle changes, restorative dental treatments, a mouth guard or night guard, or jaw surgery.

EVERY PATIENT HAS A STORY

I just started going to Dr. Singer. He and his teams views on health, nutrition and lifestyle management are very much in line with my own. It's really hard to find solid Dentist who is also holistic. So far I really like the practice and am looking forward to working with them for years to come.

I have been a patient for a while and have only good things to say about Dr. Singer’s practice. The office is immaculate and the entire staff is friendly, efficient, caring and highly skilled. Dr. Singer takes time and explains what he’s doing every step of the way and after procedures he follows up himself to make sure all is well which it always is. I recently needed an emergency visit during the pandemic and knew that his office would be safe to visit because of their history of best hygienic practices. They now adhere to an even higher standard ensuring the safety of staff and patients alike.

I throughly enjoyed my visit with Dr. Singer and his team. From my first scheduling call with Laurie to getting set up with Kelly and to my examination with Dr. Singer everything was seamless.When going to a new doctor/dentist office one is always worried that the staff can be unfriendly at times. However, Dr. Singer’s team was so warm and friendly which made me feel very comfortable.If you’re looking for a new dentist I would highly recommend Dr. Singer!

I’ve been to about 10 dentists, dr singer has been my favorite thus far. He has the latest technology, ozonated water, and leans in a more natural direction. He’s IAOMT accredited, is always very respectful of my time & gets me right in, is very direct & transparent with my teeth & has excellent bedside manner. Give him a try, I wholeheartedly recommend 🙏
