What happens during your first visit at TMJ Centre Melbourne?
When you visit TMJ Centre Melbourne, you are entering a one-of-a-kind medical practice. Our centre is dedicated to the treatment of TMJ concerns as well as sleep apnoea. Your first visit is where you will meet with Dr Shah. He will assess your condition and listen to your concerns before determining the best course of action for treatment.
One-of-a-kind medical practice
Since 2012 Dr Shah has teamed up with chiropractors to provide holistic all-encompassing treatment for TMJ complaints. By working side-by-side with our TMJ chiropractor, diagnosis and treatment are much faster and more effective than if you were to go from location to location.
Often times when you go between different practitioners at different locations, you can end up receiving treatment in the wrong order. It may also make it more difficult for the two practitioners to communicate the patient’s treatment plan and specific areas of concern with each other. This may result in ineffective treatment.
Your first appointment
Your first appointment at TMJ Centre Melbourne will be with Dr Shah. Dr Shah will provide a holistic assessment of your current symptoms and condition and will develop a treatment plan, tailored to you. By creating treatment plans that are designed specifically for the individual patient, symptoms can often be treated quicker and more effectively.
Many TMJ complaints can be treated with an orthotic device. However, if your condition is severe (or chronic) you may need to see Dr Shah and one of our chiropractors together. If this is the case, both Dr Shah and our TMJ chiropractor will provide treatment in the same room, at the same time.
The benefit of seeing both dentist and chiropractor for a consultation is a more comprehensive consultation as well as holistic treatment plan. This treatment plan can be tailored to your concerns and symptoms to help achieve your desired outcome.
