Temporomandibular Joint Therapy

Dr Esther Rubin has been a loud and passionate advocate of whole body wellness being affected by dental health. This is why she has a very keen interest in diagnosing and treating TMJ disorders.

Your occlusion is very connected to your neuromusculature and your temporal mandibular joint. A disturbance in that balance can have grave effects on your health. Creating a balanced bite is important for the health of your TM joint. Dr. Esther Rubin addresses your neuromusculature as well as your joint and occlusion to share with you the status of your TMJ. Not only can the bite be a cause of TMJ issues but also trauma to the facial muscles (ie whiplash) and/or anatomical irregularities. Her approach to treatment is multi-disciplined and interactive.

“Dr Rubin received The ‘Certificate of Appreciation’ in grateful recognition of her 10 years of outstanding service to the Columbia University Institution”

Some of the symptoms experienced in sufferers of TMJ Disorder include:

  • Headache, jaw, ear, or facial pain?
  • Being unable to open the mouth comfortably
  • Clicking, popping or grating sounds in the jaw joint
  • Locking of the jaw when attempting to open the mouth
  • Headaches
  • A bite that feels uncomfortable or “off”
  • Neck, shoulder and back pain
  • Swelling on the side of the face
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Ear pain
  • Decreased hearing
  • Dizziness and vision problems or other similar problems?

Some people with certain TMJ issues get better without treatment. However, the problem may take many months to alleviate. If the duration of symptoms is too long or if the pain is severe a simple consultation will elucidate the source of your problem. In your initial consultation, Dr Rubin will conduct a TMJ examination to ensure you have no issues with your bite.
