Got Headaches? Got Jaw Pain?

Posted .

Did you know that the #1 etiology of TMJ Disorders is HEADACHES? Neuromuscular dentists work to establish a jaw position that balances the teeth, muscles and jaw joints. Applying neuromuscular principles, we can relax the muscles around the jaw using a TENS device and use Computerized Mandibular Scanning (jaw tracking) to evaluate the jaw’s full range of motion (up, down, right, left, forward, back, pitch, roll and yaw). Along with EMG and digital sonography, the NM dentist will determine the optimal position of one’s bite based on the position of the jaw joint. An orthotic may be used to keep this harmonious relationship.
