Patients come from Alaska, Florida, and everywhere in between to see Dr. Ira Adler in Marlton, New Jersey, to help alleviate the pain caused by temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) and related disorders. Dr. Adler has spent the past 25 years studying and treating TMJ and has established himself as a leading expert, helping patients struggling with symptoms to regain a high quality of life.
Dedicated to Alleviating Pain
Dr. Adler has dedicated the majority of his decades-long career in dentistry to learning as much as possible about the challenges facing patients with TMJ disorders and working to alleviate the often debilitating symptoms. He provides top-tier care for each patient who walks through his door and provides the best quality treatment within the framework of their diagnosis, helping to ease the burden of those living with chronic pain.
Treatments for TMJ can often help people struggling with other diseases and disorders. For example, Dr. Adler treats many patients with Meniere’s disease who experience vertigo, hyperacusis and tinnitus, which interfere with their well-being. His patients often come to his office seeking treatment options other than surgery, and many are able to manage the symptoms of Meniere’s disease through appliances that reposition their jaws and subsequent orthodontic aligner therapy.
Many patients with TMJ disorders also have obstructive sleep apnea and, for a variety of reasons, are unable to use a CPAP machine. Dr. Adler offers patients a number of options to give them the healthy, restful sleep they need, such as appliances that connect the masks more comfortably or replace the CPAP machine completely.
Unique, Specialized Treatment
No matter the underlying cause, Dr. Adler works closely with each of his patients to identify the best treatment options. He guides each patient through a detailed medical history to take a holistic look at possible causes and treatments, taking the time to do x-rays and impressions to decide which appliance would provide the best support. He understands that each patient is unique and there is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan. Instead, Dr. Adler is motivated to learn about each patient’s individual needs in order to give them back a high quality of life.
