If you’re experiencing unexplained problems like jaw soreness, popping of the jaw joints, or headaches, you may very well be suffering from a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problem. Neuromuscular dentistry is a highly specialized area of dentistry that focuses on solving a variety of symptoms by restoring a proper dental bite. Royal Oak Dental Group is one of only a handful of neuromuscular dentists in Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill, and Siler City, NC who offer TMJ diagnosis and treatment.
How Royal Oak Dental Group Treats TMJ
The Royal Oak team can evaluate your bite and jaw problems to find the cause, and then treatment to restore a well-fitting bite can begin. If the jaw joints are displaced, or the problem lies with weak or uneven muscle tissue, use of an orthotic appliance may be a solution. If other solutions are not successful, surgery can be very effective.
If you think you may be experiencing a TMJ problem and need TMJ treatment, please schedule a neuromuscular dentistry consultation with Royal Oak Dental Group today. As an experienced Neuromuscular Dentist, we will listen to you and give you a comprehensive TMJ exam. You don’t need to suffer that pain indefinitely.
Diagnosing Temporomandibular Joint Problems (TMJ)
Royal Oak Dental Group uses a series of technologically advanced tests to help determine the cause or causes, including the K7 Evaluation System, to diagnose TMJ-related problems. Some of the symptoms that are signs of TMJ are:
- Recurring headaches
- Pain behind the eyes
- Tinnitus (ringing of the ears)
- Grinding of the teeth
- Frequent jaw clenching
- Neck, shoulder, or back pain
- Numbness in the fingers
