  • Why Braces Can Help Adults in Caldwell NJ

    If you are an adult living in Caldwell NJ and are experiencing TMD symptoms, adult braces may be a solution to your problem.  Experienced orthodontist, Dr. Milestone, located in West Orange and Paramus, is here to answer your questions about braces for adults. TMD stands for Temporomandibular Disorder and the symptoms can include

    • Muscle spasms in the jaw area
    • Pain in the jaw area
    • Pain, ringing, or stuffiness in the ears
    • Frequent headaches or neck aches
    • A change in the alignment of top and bottom teeth
    • Clicking or popping sound when the jaw moves
    • Locked jaw or limited opening of the mouth

    If you feel you have these symptoms in, braces may be needed to correct your jaw and will help alleviate your symptoms.  Many people get TMD without ever having braces. Symptoms usually wax and wane regardless of if braces are worn. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, and may be concerned that you’re a candidate for TMD treatment, please contact Milestone Orthodontics in the Caldwell NJ area for a free consultation.
