TMJ, Head and Facial Pain, Sleep Apnea, Snoring and Dental Oncology 

Do you feel rested after a night of sleeping?

 

 

Do you snore at night? Are you constantly tired throughout the day? Did you know that you may be suffering from a sleep disorder known as obstructive sleep apnea? 

Do you have persistent headaches?

 

 

Persistent daily headaches and facial pain can be debilitating. Treating headaches requires a multidisciplinary approach. Dr. Levi has extensive experience treating migraines, tension headaches, cluster headaches and other type of facial pain.

Do you suffer from TMJ or Jaw Pain?

 

 

 

 

Dr. Levi is an expert in treating temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders jaw pain and other orofacial pain conditions. Get relief today by scheduling an appointment.

The TMJ, also known as the temporomandibular joint, connects the temporal process of the maxilla (upper jaw) to the mandible (lower jaw). Often people will incorrectly state that they have TMJ when they are referring to TMJ related pain, more commonly known as TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder). TMD represents a broad term to describe muscle and joint related pain affecting the TMJ. Orofacial pain dentists treat and manage TMD along with other orofacial pain conditions. 
 
Orofacial pain is the field of dentistry focused on treating and managing pain affecting the head and neck that is not dental in origin. This includes jaw pain, headaches (migraines, tension type headaches, cluster headaches), nerve pain (neuropathy and neuralgia), neck pain and shoulder pain as well as burning mouth syndrome, oral mucositis-related pain and pain from oral ulcers (mouth sores). 
As an orofacial and TMJ pain dentist, Dr. Lauren Levi believes in the biopsychosocial model of treating pain. Understanding that orofacial pain is a complex process mediated not just by biological processes, Dr. Levi is committed to evaluating the psychological, social and biological factors that influence pain.

Oral Medicine is the field of dentistry that involves the diagnosis, treatment and management of medical conditions that affect the oral and maxillofacial region, including soft tissue disorders such as mucosal disease, orofacial pain, sleep dentistry, and the oral effects of cancer therapy.
Passionate about oral medicine, Lauren Levi DMD is committed to:             
 
 
  • Treating Oral Diseases and Disorders
  • Treating Orofacial Pain and TMJ Dysfunction
  • Fabricating Oral Appliance Therapy for Snoring and Treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea

What is Dental Oncology?

 
 

Dental oncology is an area of dentistry focusing on the dental and oral manifestations of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and/or head and neck surgery. Dentists trained in dental oncology are committed to working closely with oncologists and others involved in a patient's cancer therapy to enhance the patient's quality of life before, during, and after treatment in several ways. First, these dentists evaluate patients before they undergo stem cell and bone marrow transplants, receive anti-resorptive medications (such as bisphosphonates) or chemotherapy, and undergo radiation treatment. Additionally, they provide periodic dental care during and after cancer therapy. They treat and manage the dental and oral side effects of cancer therapy such as mucositis, mouth sores, thrush, and dry mouth, as well as perform general dental treatment. Dentists with dental oncology training are also knowledgeable in the developmental side effects of cancer therapy and are equipped to treat pediatric patients with a history of cancer. 
As a dentist with advanced training in dental oncology from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Dr. Lauren Levi has extensive experience in providing dental care to patients before, during, and after cancer treatment and in treating patients who face individualized dental needs because of these programs.
