What is TMJ?
TMJ/TMD sufferers experience uncomfortable symptoms for a reason – an unbalanced bite, where the upper and lower jaws meet. Once our neuromuscular dentist evaluates your symptoms and diagnoses TMJ, he will develop a personalized treatment plan designed to correct it.
Neuromuscular dentistry is the art and science of finding a person’s relaxed jaw position (their correct bite), and then devising treatments to make it permanent, thus eliminating those painful symptoms. We use sophisticated computer analysis as well as muscle relaxation techniques to diagnose and treat your symptoms. We are often very successful in improving or eliminating the chronic pain and discomfort felt by TMJ sufferers.
The high-tech Electromyograph (EMG) is used to track jaw muscle activity and find the perfect position of rest. Our neuromuscular dentists then use a variety of treatment measures to establish your bite in its correct position.
