Cary TMJ Treatment

Feel Real Comfort Again

We bet you’d be shocked if you knew the number of people like you who can’t seem to find the help they need for their jaw pain in Cary.

How is this possible? It could be because so many patients struggle daily, stuck in a cycle of constant pain and discomfort, with no idea of which way to turn.

What’s worse is that TMJ or temporomandibular health issues often go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed as another disease, preventing the root problem from being addressed.

Lucky for you, Dr. Niraj Patel is here with the background and knowledge to understand how to effectively treat jaw pain and TMJ disorders. Get another opinion at Cary Family Dental and let us show you options for real relief.

What is TMJ or TMD?

If you feel at the base of your ears, you’ll soon locate what’s commonly called your TMJ or temporomandibular joint.

When you see Dr. Niraj Patel because you’re in pain, sometimes it’s because something is out of alignment with your TMJ. Discomfort can follow, also known as TMD or temporomandibular disorder.

There are a few ways Dr. Patel can assess your TMJ. He has the advanced training and diagnostics to spot some of the most common signs of TMD.
