Diagnosing Tuckahoe TMJ Disorder
Our TMJ disorder diagnostics are some of the most advanced in the industry. To show exactly why you are suffering from your particular symptoms, we use a dental articulator.
A dental articulator is a special machine that allows us to mount models of your teeth and orient them in space to show how they function. It works in a very similar way to the jaw so that if your bite is off or your teeth worn, the articulator will allow us to show – in three dimensions – how your jaw is affected and how we can correct it.
By visually representing where the teeth are positioned in relation to the joints, we can test the correct position, recreate a functional bite and demonstrate it to you, before we even begin working in your mouth!
