Get back to living life without jaw pain with our TMJ treatment!

TMJ refers to the temporomandibular joint, which is the bone structure, muscles and connective tissues that surround the jaw and control chewing. When patients experience disorders of this joint, they are said to have a temporomandibular joint disorder or TMD. Symptoms of TMD include pain and tenderness near the jaw, as well as popping or clicking in the joint when speaking or chewing. There are many ways of treating TMJ disorders, ranging from non-invasive therapy and bite splints to injections or surgery. Left untreated, however, TMJ disorders can lead to headaches, muscle pain, malocclusion and tooth damage from grinding or clenching.

Did you know…
that TMD alone is not a disorder, but instead a collection of disorders that affect the temporomandibular joint? It is the second most common pain-causing musculoskeletal condition in the U.S. according to the U.S. National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, as many as 12 percent of Americans may suffer from some type of TMD, with women twice as likely to be affected than men. But despite the prevalence and wide availability of treatment, only one out every three people with TMD fails to seek treatment.

I would not say that I have been to a “dentist” until our visit at Glen Park Family Dentistry. They are located at... 633 Greenway Road SE, Glen Burnie, Maryland. My uncle got an exam and some cleaning done, and the doctor spent 30 minutes, yes, 30 minutes, patiently discussing with us, hearing our concerns, and educating us. Unfortunately, that’s the case for all my previous dental experience, you never see doctors for more than 5 minutes in general. We arrived while it’s still bright outside, and left when it’s dark. Doctor is not rushing. Technology here is amazing, I’ve never seen all pictures and X-rays of the teeth in such a giant screen. They even teach my uncle how to clean properly. And they even show the before and in progress photos, which is priceless. I forgot to mention, during the cleaning, my uncle is watching TV while on a massage chair. Highly recommend this place to anyone that is looking for a Dentist, an actual Dentist.read more

I have had horrible experiences with every dentist in the past, and walking through the door had extreme anxiety about... the visit. Dr. Lin was AMAZING, talked me through every step of the process, and eased my anxiety so quickly. They even have a fancy camera that takes pictures so they can show you what THEY see instead of just telling you. dental experience by far! Highly recommend this office and Dr. Linread more

My experience was excellent. I am so nervous going to the dentist and my hygienist made me feel so comfortable for my... cleaning and was very patient and in tune with when I needed a minute or a break with my teeth. My doctor was very informative and nice to be with giving me just enough information but not so much as to overwhelm me. This is definitely becoming my permanent dentist office. Thank you Glen Park so much for a wonderful experience!read more

I had the best experience at this office. This office is very clean and have the best equipments ever. There are three... TV screens in each room so I was able to watch a movie while I was getting treatment. My room had massaging chair that made me relax the whole time I was there. The receptionist and dental assistant were very friendly and kind. Dr. Lin was very kind, polite and helpful. He was excellent with explaining my treatment options. He really took his time to explain everything clearly. Without a doubt, he’s the BEST dentist ever. I HIGHLY recommend this office to anyone who is looking for new dentist. You will not regret.read more

Dr. Lin has been nothing but kind and caring for patients. Visiting the office made me feel relaxed and welcomed by him... and his staff members. This office is newly designed and well built. Everyone in this office makes sure that patients are feeling comfortable at all time. The television on the ceiling is a PLUS because when the dental professional works on my teeth, I am able to watch a movie and relax without thinking about the procedure. Dr. Lin is very talented and extremely knowledgeable. He explains every procedure to his patients in depth and makes sure that we know what the process will be. He makes sure that patients never feel lost and confused. This is a great office with highly intelligent staff members. I would highly recommend this office for your next dental visit!!!!read more

I liked how he showed me close-up pictures of my teeth as he explained issues, so I could see them for myself. I would definitely recommend Glen Park Family Dentistry.read more

I was referred to Glen Park Family Dentistry through my insurance. I came in for an exam due to a cavity that was... causing me some discomfort. The office is very clean, inviting and nicely decorated. I was very pleased with how pleasant the staff was and how informative they were about the entire process that I’d be going through. The use of advanced technology in this office was a plus for me. Dr Chang was great! He answered all of my questions and went above and beyond to make your that I left with great understanding of everything that I would need. I will definitely be returning!read more

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if TMJ treatment is right for me?
You will first need to be formally examined and diagnosed with TMJ disorder. Our dentists will evaluate the extent of the condition and determine what course of treatment is best for you. Usually, the initial approach involves conservative treatments, such as self-care, physical therapy and bite guards. Medications may also be used to relax the jaw or relieve pain. Patients who do not respond to conservative treatments may be considered for surgery or joint injections.

What should I expect if I undergo treatment for TMJ at Glen Park Family Dentistry?
TMJ treatment varies from patient to patient, so your experience may be very different than someone else’s. You’ll probably be asked to adopt certain lifestyle changes to help facilitate rehabilitation in your jaw. For example, you may be asked to avoid sudden jaw movements, such as yelling or yawning. You may also need to begin sleeping on your back and take steps to reduce your stress levels.

Will I need to follow any special post-care instructions while being treated for TMJ?
Your post-treatment care instructions will vary according to the type of treatment you receive. If you undergo an aggressive treatment, such as surgery, you may be temporarily subject to an all-liquid diet. You’ll also need to apply ice to the face to minimize swelling and also keep the surgical site clean and dry.
