WELCOME TO THE AMATO CENTER TMJ PROGRAM
Our approach to TMJ treatment has been developed over the past 40 years. With a combined 90 years of experience, our team has treated many thousands of patients and have performed over a thousand corrective jaw and TMJ surgeries. In addition, our doctors comprise a major part of the The New Jersey Institute for Craniofacial Surgery team at Barnabas Health / Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center. As a result of our experience, we understand the complexities of the temporomandibular joint as well as the pain and frustration associated with ineffective treatments. We are dedicated to providing long term relief for our patients so that they can return to their busy lives.
Our multi-dicipline team of physicians, surgeons, and dentists provides a unique approach to the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ. The experience we have gained through the treatment of children and adults with craniofacial syndromes, cleft lip & palate, trauma, and facial growth deformities has provided us with a unique understanding of the complex temporomandibular joint and its relationship with the jaws, teeth, muscles, and ligaments of the face. We have culminated this knowledge into our TMJ PROGRAM and it's protocols. Our comprehensive knowledge of the TMJ as well as TMJ related medical and dental issues allows us to provide more predictable results for our patients. We believe that conservative and minimally invasive treatment is always the best approach if possible and will always begin with such modalities.
PUBLICATIONS FROM THE AMATO CENTER
These books were created to give doctors and patients the knowledge to make confident decisions throughout their treatment journies. They are designed as a reference guides and do not need to be read cover to cover. Read the chapters that apply to you first, but keep them nearby; new chapters will likely become relevant along the way. Remember, you can do this! Be patient and stay focused. In the end, your life will be positively changed forever.
