TMJ Disorder Care and Neuromuscular Dentistry
Find Relief from Facial Pain, Headaches and Migraines!
These days so many people suffer from debilitating and constant headaches, TMJ and upper body stiffness and discomfort. And it can be very difficult to get help for these symptoms. Often they are non-specific enough that doctors dismiss them. Other doctors prescribe pain medication to mask the symptoms or suggest jaw surgery.
We have a gentle, non-invasive way to treat these symptoms – neuromuscular dentistry. Neuromuscular dentistry focuses on the relationship of your jaw position, bite and teeth.
Your Healthy Bite
A truly healthy and comfortable smile begins with a physiologically sound bite. When your top jaw is aligned with your bottom jaw, your bite is in its optimal position and the muscles will be calm and relaxed.
When the alignment is off, called malocclusion, painful symptoms can result.
Through neuromuscular dentistry, Dr. Ratner will determine the optimal position of your jaw by measuring the relaxed position of your head and neck muscles; then gently and non-surgically reposition the jaw to achieve those exact measurements.
