TMJ can be caused by trauma to the jaw, can be related to muscular and joint problems and it can be a source of occasional or frequent pain. Often characterized by jaw clicking and soreness, restricted movement or jaw locking, as well as associated symptoms, TMJ pain and symptoms can strike at any time. It most often happens during times of stress, when people tend to clench their jaw.
Neuromuscular dentistry can encompass night guards, anti-inflammatory pain medication, jaw exercises, as well as dental technology that can help you keep your jaw in a more optimal position. A trained neuromuscular dentist has the experience, the track record, and the dental technology to help you overcome the pain of TMJ.
