What Is Neuromuscular Dentistry?

TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder is a common but often misdiagnosed and untreated disorder, that causes chronic pain and discomfort. Neuromuscular dentistry is a non-invasive treatment for TMJ disorder that does not involve surgery.

The malocclusion (bite misalignment… This text opens Mayo Clinic TMJ article in a new tab …) that causes TMJ disorder can be developmental, caused by wear or damage to the teeth, or even the result of bad dental work. Dr. Duncan can identify the cause of the problem and find a lasting, effective solution – ending your pain!

Do you suspect that TMJ disorder is the cause of your dental issues? Symptoms that could indicate malocclusion include:

  • Headaches
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Worn or chipped teeth
  • Limited jaw movement
  • Jaw, neck, or shoulder pain
  • Clicking or popping noises in the jaw joint

Have Questions about Neurmuscular Dentistry?

Dr. Duncan has the answers to your top questions about this innovative dental procedure.
  • How long will it be before my symptoms are relieved?

    You should see rapid relief from symptoms as soon as we begin therapy. The condition will continue to improve with treatment until we have achieved a permanent solution that restores the full, pain-free function of your teeth and jaw again.

  • How much does neuromuscular dentistry cost?

    The cost will depend on the extent of dentistry needed. Restorative dentistry solutions such as implants, crowns, or orthodontics may be needed to restore bite alignment.

    After a consultation and thorough examination by Dr. Duncan, we will be able to give you a more detailed estimate of the work needed and the length of treatment time.

  • What is oral appliance therapy?

    Sometimes we can correct a bite with a custom-crafted orthotic that is worn at night while you sleep. Many patients experience relief from jaw pain, headaches, muscle pain, and sleep disruption by regularly wearing an oral appliance.
