TMJ Dysfunction

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction is a condition affecting the two joints located in front of the ears. Important in many ways, these joints are necessary in the opening and closing of the mouth, as well as chewing, swallowing, breathing, talking, yawning and kissing. TMJ Dysfunction can be an extremely painful condition, causing chronic facial pain for sufferers. Stress is a key contributor in the development of TMJ Dysfunction.
Neuromuscular Dentistry incorporates the combined knowledge of the mouth, teeth, gums, jaw, facial and oral tissues. It is an expansion of traditional dental techniques to focus on occlusion. This technique evaluates the relationship between the teeth, the Temporomandibular Joint and muscles, in order to achieve optimal occlusion. Through the effective utilization of this data healing will occur, helping you re-establish your oral well-being.
