Along with good oral hygiene, there are other concerns that many patients that visit Dr. Stephen Matarazzo deal with. From TMJ to holistic dentistry, the doctor provides his patients with many options and treatments. 

TMJ

TMJ, which stands for temporomandibular joint, is a joint in the jaw that can be troublesome for some patients. For some, it may be painful to move. It may lock up and cause problems. It can result in clicking and cracking sounds, and can cause pain in the mouth, jaw, neck, and head. Patients with continual issues with their TMJ are classified as having TMD, temporomandibular disorder. The jaw may be misaligned, the bone may rub against bone, and many problems can stem from this condition. Dentists such as Dr. Matarazzo can offer oral appliances to help alleviate the pain and problems associated with TMD and the TMJ. These appliances can help realign the jaw and reduce the pressure that can cause negative effects on the teeth. They use neuromuscular dentistry in order to realign the joint and muscles to get the proper bite and relieve the muscle tension. 

Non-Metal Fillings

Dr. Matarazzo has not used metal fillings for approximately 25 years. This is due to the fact that it is a dangerous and scary substance. Mercury is not safe, and can even be a problem for the staff in the dental office. Problems arise when mercury fillings are placed, and many times, there is decay underneath them that is undetectable by an x-ray. Due to these issues, additional problems may occur and further treatments may be necessary to address these conditions. Restorative treatments and cosmetic procedures may be needed once the tooth has gotten to the point of being destroyed by the mercury fillings. Patients can come to Dr. Matarazzo to receive non-metal fillings. He uses white composite filling that not only serves its purpose, but does so in a way that is cosmetically and aesthetically pleasing.
