TMJ Pain CareJaw pain, facial pain, migraines, headaches? Your TMJ team in Calgary can help
your jaw and your bite go through a lot
As they fatigue, there is a build up of lactic acid and other waste products, which can cause further spasms and discomfort. At some point, the body can work to flush out the muscles with increased blood flow, resulting in pounding headaches.
Muscles work together as a team. When the jaw muscles, which are involved with chewing, biting, talking, breathing and head posture are overused, they recruit muscles of the neck, shoulder, and back. The tight, painful, contracted muscles of the jaw result in pain in the muscles of the neck, shoulder, and back. Neuromuscular treatment may help to relieve many of these issues!
The Benefits of finding your Ideal Alignment and bite
treat tmj disorder: keeping your bite and jaw happy
Looking for a TMJ specialist in Calgary but you don’t know where to start? As there is actual designation called “TMJ specialist,” our Calgary dental office uses a neuromuscular and physiological approach to TMJ disorder.
We can help to determine if the symptoms you are experiencing are the result of a bad bite. We then go through a series of steps to not only relieve your symptoms but to also help correct the cause of these issues. Treatment may begin with the relieving of muscle spasms and the associated pain. We use a unit called a Myo-monitor which helps to relax the patient’s muscles. The Myo-monitor stimulates the Trigeminal Nerve and The Facial nerve using a very mild electrical impulse. After TENSing there is much less activity, and the muscle may be much “happier”.
