Millions of Americans suffer from these symptoms and find no recourse in medication. Many of them don't relalize that one of the main causes of these symptoms is a condition called TMD or Temperomandibular Joint disorder. Surgical treatment of this condition has a success rate of only 50%.
Chronic pain can not only be debilitating when one has to deal with it everyday, but the condition can get worse with time and much harder to treat. When any of these symptoms arise they need to be addressed as soon as possible.
Dr Singh has spent the last ten years studying about TMD and treating it in her office with a very high success rate. She has had training exclusively in TMD and Sleep Dentistry, and continues to attend courses related toTMD every year to stay at the cutting edge of the latest treatment modalities available.
Our State of the art office has a 'Relax' room especially reserved for our TMD patients where we perform our weekly physical therapy sessions. Our sessions utilize TENS units, Ultrasound massages, Accupresssure, Cold Lasers and much more so that our patients can experience relief as quickly as possible.
