Don’t Waste Another Day in Pain

It is estimated that over 20 million people suffer from TMJ, and has been shown to be more common in women than men. TMJ is caused by improper alignment of the temporomandibular joint. This misalignment causes a disorder, TMD, which can create a host of problems for the sufferer. Thankfully, Dr. Mike Lakota is highly experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of TMJ in Naperville and Shorewood.

TMD problems include:

  • Headaches/migraines
  • Vertigo
  • Pain in the jaw joints
  • Grinding of the teeth
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Neck and upper back stiffness

Dental specialist, Dr. Mike Lakota, will carefully address your jaw position and design a custom orthodontic for you and your mouth. Using an EMG and computer imaging to track your jaw joints and muscles, Dr. Lakota will determine the optimal placement for your jaw. A customized orthotic will then be created for your lower teeth, helping keep your jaw in the proper position, alleviating your symptoms and finally providing the relief you’ve been seeking.

Most patients who suffer from TMD also have neck and back issues which they often try to resolve with a chiropractor, only to find minimal relief. Don’t waste another day in pain. Schedule an appointment with Shorewood and Naperville TMJ expert, Dr. Mike Lakota! We’ll help get you smiling again!
