TMJ Specialist in North Atlanta
We are very proud to have Dr. Norberto Delgado on our team of Smile Specialists. Dr. Delgado is a Prosthodontist with advanced certified training in the treatment of Disorders of the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ).
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. Dr. Norberto Delgado is the only dentist specialized in Prosthodontics and with Advanced Certified Training in the treatment of TMD/TMJ, serving the North Atlanta area.
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.
