Neuromuscular Dentistry - TMJ Dentist
SERVING GEORGETOWN, ROUND ROCK, AND AUSTIN, TEXAS
Neuromuscular dentistry is the type of dentistry that focuses on the muscles that move the jaw, and how the jawbone and bite is aligned to function properly. The key to comfort and stability is harmony between the muscles, bones, and teeth with respect to the rest of the body.
When your jaw alignment or bite is not correct and the jaw muscles are not able to relax as they should in their normal position, pain begins to develop around the temporomandibular joint (where the skull and jawbone connect) and its surrounding muscles. When this happens, it is referred to as Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ or TMD).
Experts estimate that TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) is the third largest health problem facing Americans today. Left untreated, TMD can lead to a number of other serious health concerns. Jaw muscles that are routinely strained can make everyday tasks difficult and uncomfortable – including chewing, swallowing, speaking, and even making certain facial expressions. Plus, TMD has been linked to migraine and tension headaches, neck and back pain, insomnia, and anxiety.
If you’re suffering from TMD, we can help. Drs. Mandy, Brittney, and Mark have treated many patients in the Austin, Round Rock, and Georgetown areas, and they would be glad to do the same for you. During your consultation, they will combine leading-edge equipment with their advanced training in neuromuscular dentistry to diagnose and treat your condition. We’ll help you feel better soon.
