About

Bio

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.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Sometimes: Popping sounds in the ear during jaw movement are caused by the TM joint but constant ear ringing or hissing is a very poorly understood symptom. The jaw muscles and the joint can be causing ear sounds but conservative and reversible treatments should be tried due to lack of much scientific data. Ear pain and ear stuffiness in absence of an ear pathology may be more predictably caused by TMJ.

Highly unlikely : Stress can worsen small fiber neuropathy but it is usually caused by damage to the neurons which occurs in physical trauma, auto immune disorders, cancer, metabolic disorders like diabetes etc.

Migraine: One of the most common possibility is a migraine, but you could be having some other illness also. You should consult your pediatrician right away. Meanwhile you could try ibuprofen or acetaminophen for symptom relief.

Thanks a lot. My headaches are probably due to a cervical reversal in my neck. I just wish I could do something for my pain. Nothing works.
