TMJ Dentist in Des Plaines, IL
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is where the lower jaw meets the skull, which lets it move. Disorders in this area are fairly common and can lead to headaches, earaches, and difficulty opening the mouth. Jeffrey Halpern, DDS, is the leading TMJ dentist in Des Plaines, IL, and can determine the cause of whatever is ailing you. This is imperative, as the cause of the problem is what guides the treatment to correct it. At our practice, we offer quality surgical options for each patient on an individual basis that relieves the symptoms.
Because patients can experience a mix of muscle and joint issues, TMJ disorder treatment and diagnosis is a complex process. Fortunately, our surgeon is a specialist with more than 24 years of experience in this area. He has been well-trained in working with the mouth, jaws, teeth, and beyond and has the technology needed to do so. Only a qualified doctor should be trusted to take care of you, and that's exactly what we have to offer.
