About TMJ Therapy
Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the place where your jaw connects to your skull to allow you to open and close your jaw smoothly. Sometimes, the temporomandibular joint is injured or damaged, resulting in a painful condition known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction or disorder (TMD). If you're having pain or hearing noises whenever you move your jaw, schedule an appointment with Dr. Ellen Katz or Dr. Bridget Glazarov to determine if you have TMJ. At our dental practice in New York, NY, we use the most cutting-edge technology to diagnose and care for your TMD. Contact our office to set up an appointment and learn more about treatment options for TMJ.
What Are the Benefits of TMJ Therapy?

- Lessening jaw, neck, and facial pain
- Minimizing headaches
- Decreasing clicking and/or popping in the jaw

What to Expect
To help diagnose a temporomandibular dysfunction at Maison BE, your dentist will carefully listen to your concerns prior to performing a mouth examination. During the exam, Dr. Ellen or Dr. Bridget will evaluate the movement of your jaw and look for signs of inflammation, misalignment, teeth grinding, and jaw clenching. Digital dental imaging may also be carried out to look for underlying causes that could determine your treatment method. Your TMJ therapy will be provided based on the severity of the issue, but some choices include oral appliances (mouth or night guards), bite adjustment, orthodontics, or dental restorations (such as crowns or bridges). Our dentists will also suggest strategies to ease pain and other problems at home.
Maison BE Dental Studio Reviews
The cleanliness of the office and the professionalism of the dental team made me feel very comfortable at my appointment and well taken care of. Thank you very much to Dr. Katz and her wonderful team.
Dr. Katz is amazing!!!! No one likes to go to the dentist and now I love it. She is friendly, gentle, sympathetic, and does excellent dentistry. I have sent my coworkers and they are just as happy.
Dr. Katz is a well-educated and experienced dentist with an excellent bedside manner and a very gentle touch. Highly recommend!
Seeing Dr. Katz and her caring staff makes going to the dentist almost palatable 🤪. Dr. Katz is kind, compassionate, and a very good dentist. She’s not going for the money grab and is conservative in her treatment. Would highly recommend this practice.
I had Invisalign done by Dr. Katz and the results are next to magnificent! In 6 months' time, I have absolutely straight teeth and a smile I am proud of! I couldn’t have done it without the amazing dedication of Dr. Katz!
