    Continuing Care and Maintenance
    TMJ/TMD treatment requires regular follow-ups, jaw exercises, stress management, dietary modifications, and avoiding harmful habits for relief.

    Regular Follow-ups

  • Schedule regular appointments with your dentist or TMJ specialist to monitor treatment progress and adjust as needed.
  • Follow-up visits ensure ongoing management of TMJ/TMD symptoms.
  • Jaw Exercises

  • Perform prescribed jaw exercises to strengthen muscles and improve jaw function.
  • Consistent exercise routines can help alleviate TMJ/TMD discomfort and improve mobility.

  • Stress Management

  • Practice stress-reduction techniques such as meditation, deep breathing, or yoga to relax jaw muscles.
  • Stress management can reduce TMJ/TMD symptoms triggered by tension and anxiety.
  • Avoid Teeth Clenching and Grinding

  • Wear a mouthguard at night to prevent teeth clenching and grinding (bruxism) that can exacerbate TMJ/TMD symptoms.
  • Practice relaxation techniques to reduce daytime teeth clenching and grinding habits.
  • Posture Improvement

    I am very pleased with Town Center Family Dental in Hillsborough NJ. I have been a patient of the practice for over four years. The dental treatment and services are state of the art and performed with the utmost professionalism and efficiency. I have had some interim dental issues between my six-month scheduled cleanings. These issues have been addressed immediately. I have never had to wait to get an appointment or the matter not taken care of in a timely manner. The insurance/billing office is equally efficient looking into out-of-pocket cost and communicating that to the patient. Staff here are very professional, knowledgeable, and efficient. They are a comprehensive dental practice.

    Very pleased with latest visit with Dr. Mark and my dental work. Was amazed at the job done and level of ability and compassion for the patient. The entire staff is pleasant courteous and eager to inform the patient of each step of any dental processes. Also amazed of the ability to manufacture dental caps on site. Each visit continues to be good. Cleanings are productive and I like being advised on how to do better. Been a few years now and am still pleased with the service and professional work. Again the staff is amazing.. courteous and efficient. Dr’s are fantastic. Today met Dr Chris and Lucy. Thank for explaining what needed to be done and being efficient and courteous. Great work.
