What is TMJ?
Temporomandibular joint disorder (also known as TMJ) is a chronic degenerative disease that may take years to develop. People who suffer from TMJ have a structural imbalance in their jaw-to-skull relationship that is caused by poor bite. This condition puts excessive pressure on the joints and surrounding tissues, twisting the jaw into an unnatural position. Often, a popping of clicking sound can actually be heard when a TMJ sufferer chews. Muscles in the face, back, neck, and shoulders may also be affected, leading to symptoms that range from headaches to numbness in the hands.
You may be a candidate for neuromuscular dentistry if you experience any of the following symptoms on a regular basis:
• Headaches or Migraines
• Pain or soreness around the jaw joints
• Facial pain
• Neck, shoulder or back pain
• Numbness in your fingers and arms
• Congestion or stuffiness of the ears
• Worn, chipped or cracked teeth
• Cracked, chipped or broken dental restorations
• Unexplained loose teeth
TMJ can now be easily and painlessly detected using state-of-the-art electrical muscle stimulator or TENSing unit and a sophisticated piece of equipment called the Myotronics K7. Your facial muscles will be exercised, built-up toxins will be released and your jaw’s optimum relaxed position will be determined. To correct your bite, Dr. Nelly Silva will most likely use dental restorations to precisely raise or lower areas of your jaw into a more neutral position. In most cases, they can reposition your bite and complete treatment in a few short weeks.
Following treatment to correct TMJ, most patients experience significant lessening to a complete cessation of symptoms. Imagine living headache free after enduring the pain for years! And as an added bonus, most patients of Dr. Silva also report positive aesthetic results – some are even asked if they’ve had a facelift.
