Non-Surgical Neuromuscular TMD Treatment

When You Tried Everything Else with NO Results...Maybe Neuromuscular Approach to TMD treatment is the ANSWER!

-our treated patients

Patients with TMD pain often take many medications, lose time from work, lose time with their family, and lose time out of their daily life.  TMD includes many symptoms that mimic other conditions and may mislead physicians to a different diagnostic path than TMD.  Patients, unaware that the symptoms originate from TMD,   typically have seen various specialists before they end up at a dental office.  It is only after all other conditions are ruled out that  TMD is left as the final diagnosis.  As a result, the patients can go on for years in pain and are managed with medications.
