Consider Neuromuscular Dentistry
Chronic Headaches or Sore Jaw?
Your bite (the way your teeth meet each other when your mouth is closed) affects your face, your jaw, your head, your neck – and your overall health. So if it isn’t properly aligned, you can end can up dealing with chronic pain.
Patients with imperfect bites can suffer from headaches, migraines, neck pain, jaw pain, jaw clicking or popping, problems swallowing, snoring or sleep apnea, vertigo, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), sensitive teeth, and posture problems.
A Custom Orthotic May Be The Solution
We practice a technique called neuromuscular dentistry, which looks at the relationship between your teeth, your muscles and your joints. Through painless electrical muscle stimulation techniques, we help your tense jaw and facial muscles relax.
Once they are sufficiently relaxed, we do a “bite registration” to determine the ideal positioning of your jaw, then create a custom orthotic that you wear at night to get your jaw used to a new, healthier resting position. Neuromuscular dentistry in Burlington can make your jaw feel painless again.
