TMJ Treatment

Advanced Procedures to Relieve Symptoms of TMJ Disorder

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) when an unbalanced relationship exists between the teeth and jaw joints the muscles must strain so the teeth fit together. This can lead to varying degrees of symptoms such as cervical neck pain, headaches, facial discomfort, clicking of joints, limited opening, or closing. Using advanced techniques in neuromuscular training such as K7 and TENS we can help find an optimized position to help alleviate these symptoms.

Our office realized over time that many of our patients were exhibiting patterns of similar symptoms such as:

  • Limited mouth opening and or closing
  • Pain when chewing
  • Headaches
  • Neck aches
  • Clogged ear(s) appearing you are getting sick, however, antibiotics do not help
  • Visits to several doctors with no relief
  • We found that there are many people suffering to varying degrees from these symptoms that we pursued a journey into learning more about TMJ. From our extensive continuing education we have been able to help many patients.

Orthotics

Orthotics are removable appliances worn after a TMD work-up and an optimized bite is found. They help to alleviate symptoms associated with TMD.
