What is Neuromuscular dentistry?

Neuromuscular dentistry is a form of dentistry that corrects misalignment of the jaw at the temporomandibular joint, otherwise known as TMJ. This form of dentistry has a holistic approach by acknowledging that as the body is connected, postural problems can be linked with jaw misalignment, which can trigger severe headaches or migraines.

What are the symptoms of TemporoMandibular disorder, known as TMD ?

There are a range of symptoms you may experience if you have TMD, some of which include:

  • Headaches or migraines
  • Facial pain
  • Jaw pain
  • Back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Dizziness
  • Sensitive or sore teeth
  • Difficulty with eating
  • Difficulty with swallowing
  • Tingling of fingertips

Is it possible to treat TMD?

Yes. The treatments to address TMD are involved yet effective. To alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by TMD, the bite needs to be brought into alignment. Once this is done, your pain will disappear so you are free to enjoy life!
