We have teamed up with Water's Edge Dentistry to provide comprehensive neuromuscular dental health and TMJ care ensuring a more balanced, healthier you!
How do you know if you have a problem with your TMJ? (This is commonly known as TMD, or Temporo-Mandibular Dysfunction) Symptoms could include:
Noice coming from the joint, including clicking or popping
Pain in the ear
Pain in the face
Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
Pain or spasm in the neck or shoulder muscles
Shortened teeth from grinding
Inability to open very wide
A change in your bite
Neuromuscular Dentistry serves to correct the bite and realign the jaw. First Dr. Dahlkemper determines the optimal position of the jaw by measuring the relaxed position of the head and neck muscles, and then repositions the jaw to achieve those exact measurements. Treatment options include adjusting the bite, orthotics, orthodontics, or restoring the teeth to their correct positions. Patients of neuromuscular dentistry experience a range of benefits from decreased or eliminated pain and discomfort to better overall health and longer-lasting dental restorations.
