Neuromuscular Dentistry Thousand Oaks
Did you know that you can now get relief from: headaches, teeth and jaw pain?
Neuromuscular dentistry focuses on the relationship between your teeth, jaw joints, head muscles and neck. These areas can help define your level of (dis)comfort every day and improving this relationship can significantly relieve pain and stress.
If your teeth are worn down or chipped, and you have experienced one or more of the following symptoms, an incorrect bite or jaw position may be the cause of your discomfort.
- Other headaches
- Loose teeth
- Teeth grinding
- Facial pain
- Receding gums
- Shoulder, neck and back pain
- Restricted jaw movement
Misalignment in the jaw, jaw joints, or the position of the teeth has a direct effect on the whole system of opening and closing the jaw. To find the proper balance between the three, specialized training and state-of-the-art neuromuscular dentistry technology is required.
Using sophisticated computerized EMG (electromyography of the jaw muscles), TMJ sonography, and magnetic jaw tracking equipment, Dr. Johnstone can identify the ideal bite position of your jaw. Imagine removing this debilitating pain and discomfort and returning to a normal everyday lifestyle.
