Neuromuscular Dentistry can help alleviate TMJ / TMD symptoms such as headaches, neck and shoulder pain, jaw pain, clicking or popping in the jaw, and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). The majority of North Americans suffer from one or more of these symptoms, and unfortunately in many cases these patients’ symptoms are either misdiagnosed or dismissed as having no physiological cause. In a number of cases, these symptoms can actually be attributed to TMJ (temporomandibular joint syndrome), also referred to as TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) or MPD (myofascial pain dysfunction). These terms are just different names for the same group of symptoms. A Neuromuscular Dentist may be able to help you if you are suffering from any of the above symptoms or a number of other symptoms.

Over the past 40 years, many advances have been made in the materials and techniques used to fill cavities and repair decayed teeth. When fillings were first introduced, they were all made of amalgam, a metal mixture containing mercury. According to Maine dentist, Dr. Bufo, these fillings, which are still used today, are not desirable for a variety of reasons: they are prone to cracking over time, very noticeable – often turning black with age, and contain hazardous mercury. For all of these reasons, dental filling upgrades that use metal-free materials are more popular than ever.

 

Many people who suffer from TMD also suffer from depression. Why? One reason is that often their symptoms are brushed off as being imagined or without physical cause. Another reason is that the symptoms are misdiagnosed and a remedy suggested which gives only temporary pain relief at best. San Ramon cosmetic dentist Dr. Anderson will be glad to listen to your concerns, and answer questions, and together you can determine what might be the best step to take next.
