Jaw and bite problems can cause serious pain and discomfort in your head, face, neck, and shoulders. Neuromuscular dentistry offers a solution to these problems, allowing Dr. Crary to realign the jaw and erase pain problems associated with the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ.

Do You Suffer from Some or All of the Following Symptoms?

  • Headaches
  • Loose teeth
  • Cracked, chipped, or worn teeth
  • Dental pain
  • Neck or shoulder pain
  • Facial pain
  • Locking of the jaw or limited movement
  • Numbness in your extremities
  • Ear congestion or ringing in the ears

These are some of the symptoms of TMD, or temporomandibular disorder. Neuromuscular dentistry can provide relief from the pain and discomfort caused by TMD using cutting-edge technology and techniques.

At Aesthetic Dentistry of Stuart, we use the latest neuromuscular dentistry technology to counteract your TMJ problems. Using a TENS (transcutaneous electrical neural stimulation) unit, we can address jaw alignment problems, bringing the jaw into a more balanced position. This piece of equipment relaxes the neck and head and stimulates the release of endorphins. We might also use electromyography (EMG) or sonography (ESG) to further assess and alleviate TMJ issues.

You may have been told in the past that no one could figure out why you were experiencing chronic head, neck, or shoulder pain. Let us explore whether your problems might be TMJ-related with a neuromuscular dentistry assessment. You don’t have to live in pain any longer thanks to Aesthetic Dentistry of Stuart.
