Dr. Mark Caggiano, DDS
Jaw pain is associated with Temporomandibular joint. There are multiple ways of correcting that. The first step that we would take is to use our tensing machine which will actually relax the muscles of the jaw. So we can find the position that’s most comfortable for your mouth. Once we find that position we can make a pipe guard to keep your jaw in that position to help relax all the muscles and once we have done that then we can rebuild the mouth into that position so the jaw muscles are comfortable relieves the stress, tension that patient have.
