Neuromuscular Dentistry for TMD

What is TMD?

Temporomandibular Disorder, or TMD for short, is a medical condition that affects the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which is the joint that connects your jawbone to your skull. TMD can cause pain, discomfort, and dysfunction in the jaw, face, and neck, as well as difficulty chewing, speaking, or opening and closing the mouth.

There are several factors that can contribute to TMD, including jaw injuries, arthritis, teeth grinding or clenching, stress, and misalignment of the teeth or jaw. Symptoms of TMD can vary widely, but may include pain or tenderness in the jaw, face, neck, or shoulders, clicking or popping sounds when you open or close your mouth, difficulty opening your mouth fully, or a sudden change in how your teeth fit together

How can All Smiles Dental Group Help?

Our approach to treating TMD involves a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth, jaw, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms. We use advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to provide an accurate diagnosis and develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs and preferences.

If you're experiencing symptoms of TMD, don't suffer in silence. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and take the first step towards a healthier, more comfortable smile.

Hard and soft tissues have a complex relationship. We work to make that relationship harmonious. If your jaw is misaligned, many physiological problems can result, including:

  • Headaches /migraines

  • Back, neck, and shoulder pain

  • Jaw pain

  • Worn or cracked teeth

  • Facial pain

  • Sensitive and sore teeth

  • Limited jaw movement

  • Clicking or popping in the jaw joints

We Care About Your Overall Oral Health

TMD affects millions of people. Dr. Abedini has received special training to address TMD problems using the inclusive approach to neuromuscular dentistry. This treatment utilizes modern technology to precisely determine the proper positioning of the jaw, and to place the jaw into its optimal position, which can help relieve the symptoms associated with TMD.

If you have symptoms like those listed above, take a minute and make an appointment with our team. We’d be happy to take the time to visit with you about the benefits of neuromuscular dentistry. Call us or email us.
