If you experience headaches, migraines, neck aches, clicks or popping in your jaw, ringing in your ears, or other chronic symptoms, you may have a problem with the muscles in your jaw. Neuromuscular dentistry refers to the branch of dentistry that focuses on fixing any misalignment of your teeth and jaw at your temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
If your teeth and jaw are misaligned, it can force your muscles to overwork and cause discomfort and pain, which is called Temporomandibular Disorder or TMD. For more on the symptoms of this disorder, consult our page on TMD Symptoms.
Many times, patients who experience chronic headaches or migraine headaches, or other TMD symptoms, simply suffer through them or take pain relievers, without fixing the root of the problem. The pain could be dental in origin due to TMD and can be effectively treated through neuromuscular dentistry. Schedule a visit with our neuromuscular dentist at Beach View Dental to discover if your jaw pain could be remedied through neuromuscular dentistry. We have several TMD Treatment options which may relieve your pain.
If you have questions about TMJ or TMD, please see our Frequently Asked TMD Questions page.
