Symptoms of Neuromuscular Problems
SERVING GEORGETOWN, ROUND ROCK, AND AUSTIN, TEXAS
TMJ/TMD is sometimes a difficult neuromuscular disease to diagnose because its symptoms are broad and could be caused by a number of relatively common health problems. For this same reason, it is believed that far more people are suffering from TMJ than are aware of it.
Below are a few of the most common TMD symptoms:
- Jaw pain
- Unexplained Migraines and headaches
- Pain in your face, back, neck, or shoulders
- Difficulty when swallowing or chewing
- Teeth grinding or clenching
- Tooth pain or sensitivity
- Fillings that are worn, chipped, or cracked
- Loose teeth
- Ear pressure or congestion
- Ringing in your ears
- Difficulty opening your mouth
- Numbness in your fingers, hands, or arms

What Our Patients Are Saying
Monica and Elizabeth made cleaning and x-RAYS tolerable. We laughed the whole time. Dr Mark was clear and concise. Everyone there has a great sense of humor. I hate going to the dentist but this trip was my best experience to date.
Friendly staff, exceptional patient care
The office is well-appointed, relaxing and the staff treat everyone like family. It's also nice to not feel 'judged' when my dental status is not textbook. Never had a dentist before that didn't give me the hairy eyeball over not flossing every day. I like their holistic approach to health, not just teeth.
Aesthetic Dentistry was professional and accommodating for a dental emergency I experienced. From Emily to Hannah to Dr Duncan I was extremely impressed with not only the customer service but the professionalism and the empathy for my work schedule. Their dental techniques are the best available providing a seamless and pain free experience. I HIGHLY recommend their practice!!
A++. Lovely people in this practice, true gentle dentistry and care. Would recommend anyone, especially someone who hasn't been to the dentist in a while and is nervous. Doctor personally calls his patients the evening of your appointment to follow up. 😎
