Neuromuscular Dentistry - TMJ Treatment in Langhorne, PA

Only in recent decades has the dental profession as a whole begun to appreciate the importance of neuromuscular dentistry issues when working with the mouth and jaw.

In particular, the temporomandibular joint can become misaligned, causing a host of physical problems, including pain, damage to the teeth, jaw, and nerves in the head, causing painful headaches.

The temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects the upper jaw to your head. A healthy, properly aligned temporomandibular joint provides a broad range of motion—up and down, side to side, and front to back—and an improperly aligned temporomandibular joint can result in a host of problems, from difficulty chewing, excess wear and tear on the teeth, nocturnal teeth grinding, and pain issues including jaw pain and migraine headaches, brought on by the constant stress of the body trying to make adjustments to the misalignment.

A properly trained neuromuscular dentist can not only diagnose existing problems, including temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), but he or she can also take the alignment of the temporomandibular joint into consideration when performing procedures that affect the overall structure of the mouth and alignment of the jaw, such as dental implants, porcelain veneers, bridges, dentures, and orthodontics.
