Treating TMJ in Rockville Centre

Helping You Live Your Best Life

Can you answer “Yes” to any of these questions? If so, you could be suffering from TMJ/TMD bite issues.

  • Do you struggle day in and day out with chronic migraines or headaches?
  • Are you waking up in the morning with a sore jaw and don’t understand why?
  • Is there strange pain lingering in your face, shoulder, neck, and back?
  • Have you seen your family doctor, specialists, and still have no relief?

You’re probably wondering why you would need to see a dentist because your back hurts or some other seemingly non-dental related issue. It seems strange, right? Your chronic pain might be a sign of malocclusion or a bite that’s no longer lined up right.

It’s time you talked to Dr. Mariya Dayanayeva at The Dental Suite in Rockville Centre. Her extensive education and dedication to neuromuscular dentistry could be the answer to your prayers.

Should I Really See a Dentist for My Pain?


  • Headaches and migraines
  • Unexplained loose teeth
  • Worn, chipped, or cracked teeth
  • Cracking, chipping or breaking dental restorations
  • Pain or soreness around the jaw joints
  • Pain in teeth that seems to move around
  • Neck, shoulder or back pain
  • Facial pain
  • Clicking or grating sounds in the jaw joints
  • Limited movement or locking jaw
  • Numbness in your fingers and arms
  • Congestion or stuffiness of the ears

When your top and lower jaw are working together as they should be, your surrounding muscles, joints, and tendons are relaxed, calm, and ready to do their job. However, when your bite is off, these things tense up and are stressed. As a result of this, there’s a good chance you might experience a variety of uncomfortable symptoms.


We’ve Got the Training and Technology You Need

Dr. Dayanayeva is known for helping treat TMJ in Rockville Centre because of her experience, education, and expertise. She completed addition TMJ training at the McGann Postgraduate School of Dentistry. She uses neuromuscular dentistry techniques to determine the optimal position for your jaw. Dr. Dayanayeva can then gently, non-surgically reposition your jaw to get your bite just right.

When you come to us for your consultation at our office conveniently located in Rockville Centre, we’ll do some non-invasive testing. This helps to determine the cause of your TMJ issues by evaluating all of your muscles around your jaw. We’ll also find if you’re grinding your teeth, checking your bruxism episode index. We can even use it to screen you for sleep apnea. Based on your diagnosis, we can create a custom oral appliance that will stop your TMJ issues in their tracks. Dr. Dayanayeva can also prescribe muscle relaxants as needed.

Why wait any longer?


We hope you’ll stop trying to live with managing your pain. It’s not worth it, and you’ve got a lot of life to live. Treatment can significantly decrease your pain caused by a bad bite, even eliminating it for good. If you suffer from chronic pain that has no known cause or cure, give neuromuscular dentistry a try. You deserve to live pain-free.
