I have set up a full fledged practice in Fairfield, CT and New York City for treatment of
patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMJ, TMD), headaches, chronic
pain, and obstructive sleep disorders. Patients are referred by all
medical specialists, as well as by general dentists. Careful patient
diagnosis involves a comprehensive history and a detailed examination.
When needed, MRI or CT scans are recommended. Non-surgical, conservative
and goal setting treatment is the key to the patient management.
Based on the patient's symptoms, treatments may involve oral appliance
therapy, injection therapy (anesthetics, steroids or botulinum toxin),
vapocoolant spray and stretch, medical acupuncture and pharmacotherapy.
The key role of parafunction is emphasized. Supportive therapy,
including physical therapy modalities are prescribed as necessary.
