Neuromuscular Dentistry: TMJ/TMD Treatment

Once you realize you have TMD, and we have accurate measurements from the diagnostic process, we will have the necessary data to accurately identify your ideal jaw position. At this point we can now start your custom neuromuscular dentistry treatment plan.

To begin the process of improving your bite, we prepare a custom-made orthotic. This appliance is prescribed and manufactured for your specific bite. It is worn over your teeth to ensure you maintain your ideal jaw position.  You will wear your orthotic for a period of time to confirm that your new jaw position eliminates, or significantly reduces your initial complaints.

Once you we have established that your new bite addresses your problems, we can take the steps to help you permanently maintain your new bite.

Depending on the specifics of your bite (teeth alignment, jaw position, etc.), treatment can vary greatly from one TMD patient to the next. Some of the treatment options can include any one or combination of the following:
Once completed, you can experience a more normal, pain-free and comfortable quality of life.  

If you or someone you love may be suffering from the symptoms of TMD/TMJ, it is important that you seek the help of a trained neuromuscular dentist as soon as possible. Why live with pain?
