One of the most common TMJ symptoms is jaw pain, and one of the most effective ways to deal with TMJ is neuromuscular dentistry. TMJ is the name given to any disorder that affects the proper alignment and function of your jaw. Neuromuscular dentistry is the branch of dental science concerned with the workings of your jaw joint, along with the muscles, tendons, and nerves that make its optimal functioning possible.
Addressing Jaw Pain
The neuromuscular dentists at Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake can provide a thorough examination to determine the cause of your jaw pain. If TMJ is the culprit, treatment options such as muscle relaxation with a TENS unit, full mouth rehabilitation, or oral devices such as splints or mouthguards will all be considered.
The best treatment for your jaw pain is dependent on the cause and extent of your TMJ. Once established through neuromuscular diagnostics, we can cater a treatment option that eliminates pain, restores alignment, and helps prevent future occurrences of this common disorder.
If you are suffering from jaw pain in the areas of Westchester, Peekskill, or Yorktown, New York, please contact Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake to schedule an initial consultation with one of our neuromuscular dentists today.
