TMJ Specialist in North Atlanta
What is TMJ?
TMJ is an acronym for Temporo-Mandibular Joint, the joint that allows us to open and close our mouth. Disorders of the joint are referred commonly as Temporo-Mandibular Disorders and are the cause of jaw pops, clicks, and painful chronic muscular conditions.
Do I need a specialist on TMJ?
If you suffer chronic muscular pain of the jaw, have difficulties to open or close your mouth, notice a click or a pop of your jaw while opening or closing, then it is very possible you need a TMJ specialist.
Do I need a referral from my General Dentist?
No. Although frequently patients suffering from TMD are referred to us by other providers, you do not need a referral to be seen by a TMJ specialist. You can contact us directly to make an appointment. If you qualify as a patient, Dr. Delgado will make sure to relieve the pain in your first two visits.
