Dealing with TMJ

DO YOU EXPERIENCE JAW OR FACIAL PAIN? If so, is it constant or occasional? Drs. Jared and Daniel Theurer can use the principles of “neuromuscular dentistry” to help. Neuromuscular dentistry uses a slightly different approach than traditional dentistry in that it includes focused consideration of the muscles and nerves in and around your jaw instead of merely focusing on the teeth, bones and joints.

This more inclusive approach can help resolve TMJ, also known as TMD, by providing more comfortable and longer lasting solutions to other related dental needs such as dentures and smile makeovers.

Your  joints, muscles, teeth, and nerves all work together in the proper alignment and functioning of your jaw. If any part of this delicate equation becomes overlooked, painful conditions such as TMJ and other serious dental problems can develop.

Drs. Jared and Daniel Theurer understand that the hard and soft tissues in our jaws have a complex relationship, and they work to make that relationship harmonious. If your jaw is misaligned, many physiological problems can result, including:

  • Headaches/migraines
  • Jaw pain
  • Limited jaw movement
  • Sensitive and sore teeth
  • Facial pain
  • Worn or cracked teeth
  • Back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Clicking or popping in the jaw joints
  • etc…

Neuromuscular dentistry utilizes modern technologies and strategies to precisely determine the proper positioning of the jaw and place it into optimal position, ultimately relieving the symptoms associated with TMJ.

If you are experiencing any symptoms like those above, make an appointment with one of our Doctors. They are both happy to visit with you about the benefits of neuromuscular dentistry.
