Dr. Henry was the third Dentist I tried to help alleviate
the pain associated with my TMJ. My symptoms consisted
of a clicking sound with pain in the jaw accompanied
by extreme headaches. Most days consisted of pain
relievers to help me function through out the day.
Since I have received corrective treatment from Dr.
Henry, all of my symptoms are gone. I could never
thank Dr. Henry and his staff enough. There professionalism
and kindness is unsurpassed. My only wish is that
I had gone to them first.
(temporomandibular joint) is the joint located on each side
of the face that attaches your skull to your mandible (lower
jaw). TMJ disorders are when a number of muscle, joint, and
nerve symptoms that are caused by an irritation of the temporomandibular
joint. TMJ syndrome is more commonly referred to as lockjaw
or jaw popping. Symptoms of TMJ problems include:
- Clicking, popping or grating sounds when opening or closing
- Pain or difficulty in opening your mouth
- Pressure builds up behind your eyes
- Tenderness of the jaw
- Your jaw gets stuck or lock
- Soreness in the neck or upper back area
If your teeth
are worn down and 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. Here at the Orange
Center for Cosmetic
, TMJ disorders are treated through neuromuscular
dentistry; a procedure focuses on the muscles that move your
jaw. Neuromuscular dentistry utilizes the relaxed position of
the muscles of the head and neck to place your jaw in its optimal
position. This may be the key to relieve the pain and discomfort
many people are suffering from. If you feel you are suffering
symptoms of TMJ disorder, then contact
our office to schedule a consultation appointment.
