Neuromuscular dentistry focuses on the relationship between your jaw position, the jaw muscles, and the nerve tissue surrounding the jaw. LA cosmetic dentist David S. Frey, DDS uses neuromuscular dentistry to treat TMJ disorders in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills area patients.

The temporomandibular joint ( TMJ) is the main jaw joint. This joint is prone to developing a dysfunction or disorder, causing pain throughout the jaw, face, head, and even neck and shoulders. Although TMJ is the actual jaw joint, the acronym is often used to describe the syndrome or disorder. More appropriately, TMD is used, but the two are often interchanged freely.

TMJ/TMD can cause not only pain and discomfort, but also a slow erosion of the teeth. When the jaw is misaligned, teeth may become worn or chipped. Neuromuscular dentistry can relax the jaw muscles, allowing the upper and lower jaw to properly align.

Common Symptoms of TMJ/TMD That Can be Treated with Neuromuscular Dentistry

TMJ has numerous symptoms. Dr. Frey utilizes neuromuscular dentistry to help his Beverly Hills and Los Angeles TMJ patients find relief from:

  • Headaches
  • Facial pain
  • Jaw pain
  • Neck and/or shoulder pain
  • Popping or clicking of the jaw
  • Worn or chipped teeth
  • Limited jaw movement
  • Ringing in the ears

 

Unfortunately some patients do not realize that the pain and discomfort that they are experiencing is due to TMJ syndrome. These patients either mask the pain with over the counter pain relievers or seek advice from their primary care physician, all the while delaying the relief that neuromuscular dentistry can provide. If TMJ is left untreated, it can lead to other oral health problems, and the need for more extensive dental treatment, such as Los Angeles dental implants and porcelain veneers treatments.

Dr. Frey uses his experience with neuromuscular dentistry to analyze a patient's bite and determine how to reposition the bite so your jaw is in the most relaxed position. Before treating smile makeover Los Angeles patients, Dr. Frey will ensure that the jaw is properly aligned. This tends to relieve the pain associated with TMJ disorders. After treatment, most patients feel far less pain. To learn more about neuromuscular dentistry and TMJ/TMD, visit www.leadingdentists.com.
