Stop Your Jaw Pain Today.

Best treatment for frequent jaw pain often starts with your bite.



The symptom of frequent or long-lasting jaw pain is particularly common and can happen with children as well as adults. At Advanced Centers for Sleep Disorders and Facial Pain in Naperville, IL, Dr. Patel has helped patients get instant and long lasting relief from their jaw pain often from the very first consultation. He has seen patients suffering not only from the effects of the pain in their jaw, but also from ringing in the ears, grinding of their teeth, neck pain, and even severe headaches - all issues that can come with it. In some cases they tried powerful pain relievers and muscle relaxers to no avail and the inability of these drugs to provide relief lead to a sense of hopelessness.

There is reason for hope. It is Dr. Patel’s experience from over 20 years of seeing people who suffer from jaw pain, show that the majority of his patients suffered from Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome (TMJ). While it is true the symptoms of TMJ like jaw pain can be debilitating and interfere with everyday life, there are easy and effective ways to treat it. And that relief is instantly welcomed.

What is TMJ?

Quite simply, TMJ Syndrome is pain and impaired movement in the jaw joint and related muscles. The most common cause is misalignment of the teeth or “bad bite.” The condition is often made worse by bruxism, or grinding of the teeth. Both issues should be attended to as, if left untreated, TMJ is one of the primary contributors to eroded jawbones and loosened teeth, problems as painful as the jaw pain, dizziness or headaches. Dr. Patel can quickly and painlessly help you determine your exact jaw alignment and help you get it in the correct position, even in the very first exam.

TMJ & Jaw Pain Treatments

Dr. Patel has 20 years of experience realigning the jaw and/or patient's teeth without the need for painful or expensive surgeries. If needed, Dr. Patel can prescribe a Resuce™ treatment program that he has developed from two decades of helping patients become pain free, and it's custom fit for you. The realignment can optimize your bite and stop any dizziness, neck pain, and headaches. It also may improve the aesthetic appearance of your teeth and smile. And maybe best of all, no more jaw pain.
