Teeth Straightening & TMJ Treatments

Orthodontics in NYC involves treating irregularities of the smile and jaw, including misalignment of the teeth and bite. Dr. John Koutsoyiannis can help patients achieve an even, healthy smile with Invisalign® clear aligners. Uneven teeth make it more difficult to chew, bite, and speak correctly. Orthodontic treatment can correct these issues gradually over time. Teeth straightening treatments, such as Invisalign®, can help achieve a straighter smile.

Orthodontic treatments can also be used in conjunction with TMJ (temporomandibular joint) treatments for patients suffering from TMD, also known as temporomandibular disorder. At Sohosmile®, Dr. John has many years of experience treating jaw pain and other uncomfortable symptoms associated with a TMJ disorder.

A TMJ treatment can help you regain the ability to talk, smile, and eat with ease by treating chronic pain, soreness, or tension in the TMJ. Dr. Koutsoyiannis can help determine if Invisalign® aligners or a TMJ treatment, such as a night guard or occlusal guard, are right for you.

We are proud to offer the latest orthodontic treatments to help you achieve a healthy, straight smile. Learn more about our orthodontic treatments below.

INVISALIGN®

Invisalign® is an effective teeth straightening procedure that uses clear aligners to gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® uses custom-made aligner trays that are completely see-through. This allows for a natural-looking smile when wearing Invisalign®. Invisalign® aligners are removable but must be worn for at least 20-22 hours a day in order to achieve the desired results.

Invisalign® is able to straighten the teeth as effectively as traditional braces without the uncomfortable and bulky aspects of metal braces. Many patients choose to use Invisalign® because the aligners are discreet and hardly noticeable. This can improve confidence when speaking and smiling all while helping to properly align the smile. Additionally, Invisalign® aligners are easily removed for eating and daily cleaning.

As your teeth gradually shift with Invisalign®, new clear aligners will be provided that will further move your teeth into proper alignment. Invisalign® can help achieve a straight, even smile. Following Invisalign® treatments, a retainer is needed to maintain your results. Invisalign® treatments can be customized for each patient. Learn more about Invisalign® by clicking the button below.

TMJ TREATMENT

A TMJ treatment is designed to improve the symptoms of a TMJ disorder. The TMJ are your temporomandibular joints, which connect the jaw to the skull. These joints are on both sides of the face and are located just in front of the ears. TMJ syndrome can cause pain and impaired movement of the TMJ, which can result in jaw tenderness, earaches, difficulty chewing, talking, or smiling, facial pain, and even lockjaw.

Moderate or severe cases of a TMJ disorder can negatively affect daily life and make eating, smiling, or talking incredibly painful and difficult. A TMJ disorder can be caused by a disc displacement or muscle dysfunction. Symptoms of a TMJ disc displacement include a clicking sound, limited mobility when opening the jaw, pain when opening the jaw, and a grating sensation in the jaw. On the other hand, TMJ muscle dysfunction can cause muscle spasms, weakened jaw muscles, and painful jaw movements.

In many cases, Dr. Koutsoyiannis is able to help patients manage the symptoms of TMJ with non-surgical treatments, including TMJ night guards and working with physical therapists and acupuncturists. For more severe cases of TMJ disorders, Dr. John may suggest Botox® injections and refer you for TMJ surgery if non-surgical TMJ treatments have not provided adequate relief from painful symptoms.

WHEN DO I NEED AN ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT?

An orthodontic treatment is generally required when the teeth are misaligned or crooked. In addition to achieving a beautiful smile, orthodontic treatments can also alleviate uncomfortable symptoms of misaligned teeth, such as difficulty chewing, speech problems, and pain. If misaligned teeth affect your daily life, an orthodontic treatment can be performed to achieve proper alignment and a healthy smile.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR AN ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT?

Prior to an orthodontic treatment, Dr. John Koutsoyiannis will perform a dental examination. During this examination, digital x-rays will be taken. This information is then used to create a customized orthodontic treatment plan. Dr. Koutsoyiannis can answer any questions or concerns you may have during this appointment. Generally, a dental cleaning is performed prior to an orthodontic treatment. In some cases, Dr. John may occasionally suggest removing the wisdom teeth so that they do not interfere with an orthodontic treatment.
