3 Reasons Neuromuscular Dentistry Can Help Your TMJ Pain 

added on: March 22, 2023
All About Smiles in Wilmington

At All About Smiles, we treat a wide range of dental conditions, including one that affects millions of people, including TMJ or TMD, a disorder involving your jaw joint and surrounding muscles. As your Wilmington holistic dentists, we’re always looking for minimally invasive treatments that will provide the most pain-relieving results. One of the best, most effective ways to address this common issue among adults and even kids is through Neuromuscular Dentistry

What is Neuromuscular Dentistry?

It’s important to note that not every dentist is qualified to treat TMJ cases. Neuromuscular dentistry is a part of holistic oral health care focused on finding or restoring the perfect alignment for your bite and jaw. 

Here’s How Neuromuscular Dentistry in Wilmington Can Help You

Are you interested to learn more about neuromuscular dentistry from your Wilmington holistic dentist? We hope so, and we have a lot of resources to get you started. Here are three reasons why you should consider talking with Dr. Grace Liu and Dr. Lewis Yu about your options:

Reason #1) We perform special diagnostic tests to determine the proper positioning of your jaw so we can also perfect the alignment of your bite. 

Reason #2) Bringing your teeth, jaw joints, and muscles all back together can help alleviate many TMJ symptoms and issues.

Reason #3) We’re also trained in general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry techniques to treat your mouth and body with more holistic dental care in Wilmington. 

We mean it when we say we care about your whole body and well-being at All About Smiles! 

Possible TMJ Symptoms to Lookout For

If you’re struggling with any of these symptoms, it might be time to talk to us about neuromuscular dentistry:

  • Ringing in the ears
  • Ongoing migraines or headaches 
  • Popping or clicking sounds in your jaw
  • Seemingly mysterious neck or back pain
  • Pain while chewing or eating
