About Neuromuscular Dentistry
Neuromuscular dentistry considers the nerves, muscles and the correct positioning of the jaw.
Your teeth, joints, muscles and nerves all work together in the proper alignment and functioning of the jaw.
When any part of this equation is overlooked painful conditions such as TMJ disorders and serious dental problems
TMJ / TMD
The most life-changing effect of neuromuscular dentistry is its ability to prevent,
diagnose and treat TMJ/TMD (TM Joint syndrome / Disorder). TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, or jaw joint,
one of which is located on each side of the head.
TMJ/TMD symptoms include:
Headaches (often misdiagnosed as migraines)
Shoulder, neck or back pain
Numbness in arms and fingers
Clicking or popping jaw
Clenching or grinding teeth
Ringing ears (tinnitus)
