Problems with TMJ? Dr. Rief Can Help

DO YOU EXPERIENCE  PAIN IN YOUR FACE OR JAW? If so, is it occasional or constant? Don’t let yourself suffer—we can help! Dr. Rief and her team use principles of “neuromuscular dentistry” to improve your oral health and physical condition. In traditional dentistry, doctors are primarily concerned with your teeth, bones and joints. Neuromuscular dentistry, on the other hand, involves focused consideration of the muscles and nerves in and around your jaw attempts to correctly position your jaw to improve your overall oral health.

TMJ PainBecause this approach is more inclusive, it can help resolve painful conditions such as TMJ (temporomandibular joint syndrome), also referred to as MPD (myofascial pain dysfunction) or TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder). This solution alsoprovides longer lasting solutions and increased comfort in regards to other dental needs such as smile makeovers and dentures.

Your teeth, muscles, nerves, and joints all combine forces to ensure that your jaw is properly functioned and aligned. TMJ and other serious dental problems can develop when any part of this delicate equation isn’t doing its job correctly.

TMJ Joint

The hard and soft tissues in our jaw have a complex relationship, and Dr. Rief works to make sure that relationship is in complete harmony. When your jaw is misaligned it can lead to many physiological problems including:

  • Jaw pain
  • Limited jaw movement
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Facial pain
  • Sensitive and sore teeth
  • Back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Clicking or popping in the jaw joints
  • Worn or cracked teeth
  • etc . . .

TMJ is affecting millions of people everyday. Through neuromuscular dentistry, modern technologies and strategies are utilized to precisely determine the proper positioning of the jaw and place it in an optimal position, ultimately relieving the symptoms associated with TMJ.

If you think you have TMJ, make an appointment to talk about the benefits of neuromuscular dentistry with Dr. Rief. Let us help get rid of that unnecessary pain!
