TMJ / TMD treatment in Miami

Tired of involuntary teeth grinding, jaw pain, and discomfort near your ears? Do you feel friction when opening your jaw or experience pain while chewing food? At Tetri’s Smile, we can diagnose and treat temporomandibular disorder. We use modern diagnostic equipment and principles of gneuromuscular dentistry (GNM) to provide comprehensive care.

Dr. Baruch Tetri

The treatment of TMD using principles of neuromuscular dentistry is crucial. This method provides long-term relief and improves the quality of life for patients with TMJ disorder.

Natural harmony of the bite and the function of the temporomandibular joint system are restored. Jaw pain, headaches, and limited jaw mobility are eliminated. The lifespan of orthopedic constructions placed in the mouth, such as veneers, crowns, and implants, is extended.

Before and After TMJ Treatment

Case 1

Before receiving treatment, the patient suffered from temporomandibular disorders. Her symptoms manifested with bruxism, constant headaches, as well as discomfort in the neck and jaw. The contour of her smile changed, and the teeth became worn down. 

TMJ dentist Dr. Tetri addressed this issue. a GNM diagnostic was conducted, which helped resolve the problem with the incorrect bite. Then, the natural dimensions of the worn-down teeth were restored, and veneers were placed. The patient got rid of the pain and obtained a beautiful smile, all thanks to the principles of gneuromuscular dentistry.

Case 23

This young patient tried various cosmetic methods to prevent changes in facial shape, but they did not provide the desired results. TMJ dentistry altered the position of her lower jaw, which rejuvenated her face. The patient obtained a more defined jawline, reduced submental fat, and diminished nasolabial folds. We recommend even young patients to undergo Tetri’s Dental FaceLift to restore proper facial proportions. This serves as a solid foundation for subsequent cosmetic procedures.

Case 28

The patient was plagued by constant headaches and discomfort while chewing, which are among the symptoms of TMJ disorder. Due to an incorrect bite, the shape of her face changed.

In just 7 months, thanks to the principles of GNM, all these problems were resolved. High-quality orthodontic and orthopedic treatment helped restore facial proportions, correct the bite, and achieve a perfect smile. The patient was alleviated of pain, and her face rejuvenated by at least 10 years.

TMJ Symptoms

Clicking or limited jaw movement

Discomfort or pain while chewing, biting, or speaking (extending to the cheeks, temples, and near the ears)

Teeth grinding during sleep

Frequent headaches, migraines, and discomfort in the neck area

These symptoms can be caused by various factors. To determine if TMJ disorder is the primary cause, it is necessary to conduct a deep neuromuscular-level diagnosis.

Causes of TMJ disorder and TMD disorder

Incorrect bite. An incorrect bite can exert pressure on the temporomandibular joint and lead to TMJ disorder.

Arthritis. Some types of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, can affect the temporomandibular joint and cause temporomandibular disorder.


Bruxism (teeth grinding). Often associated with stress or anxiety, bruxism creates excessive strain on the temporomandibular joint.

Other factors include tooth loss or extraction, lower jaw fracture, congenital defects.

Diagnosing TMJ Disorders

At Tetri’s Smile, in order to obtain a comprehensive clinical understanding, we use not only visual diagnostics and examination of medical history but also advanced instrumental examinations. We utilize:


A program that determines the position of the temporomandibular joint in action and at rest in three planes.


A device with sensors that relaxes stretched/twisted muscles and helps the lower jaw assume the correct position.


A device for measuring the activity of head and neck muscles, determining their degree of contraction at rest and in action (can detect the slightest deviations from proper occlusion).


Electronic recording of vibrations (sounds) occurring in the temporomandibular joint during movement. It detects the tiniest clicks, crepitations, and noises at low/high frequencies.

Based on the collected data, TMJ dentist Dr. Tetri creates a digital three-dimensional model of the oral cavity. You can see your new smile even before the start of treatment!
