Neuromuscular dentistry is the area of dentistry that strives to place the jaw in its optimal position, relieving the symptoms associated with Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ). Neuromuscular dentistry works with the hard tissues and soft tissues, muscles and nerves. When the jaw is misaligned, both the hard and soft tissues are affected and many physiological problems can result. When the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is not aligned properly, a number of symptoms may appear including:
- Vertigo or dizziness
- Tension or migraine headaches
- Worn teeth
- Shoulder and neck pain
- Ringing of the ears
- Jaw pain
- Clicking or popping sounds in the jaw
If you have some combination of these symptoms and have found no relief at your doctor’s office, you may be suffering from TMJ. A highly trained TMJ dentist like Dr. Andrew Rudnick in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida can evaluate your symptoms, and following a thorough examination, will be able to tell you if you suffer from a neuromuscular imbalance.
These are just a few of the signs associated with misalignment of the jaw or improper bite. Dr. Rudnick’s advanced education in neuromuscular dentistry and years of experience have proven his strengths in the understanding of muscle and nerve relationships that cause these problematic symptoms. This special training and knowledge has helped him permanently remove years of discomfort from countless patients by treating the root cause and not just the symptoms.
