Find Relief for TMJ Pain

TMJ, short for temporomandibular joints, is a nickname for the small joints in front of each of your ears that attach your lower jaw to your skull. When working properly, these joints allow you to perform functions like opening and closing your mouth, chewing, speaking, and swallowing.
The functions of these joints have a large impact on your quality of life, but, unfortunately, TMJ disorder is a very common condition among adults. Headaches, migraines, earaches, and irritating conditions, such as a popping jaw, usually accompany TMJ disorder. If you have any of these symptoms, it’s possible that you are one of the millions of Americans suffering from TMJ disorder.
The dentists at Grinnell Street Dental are here to help you find relief through neuromuscular dentistry. The best way to define neuromuscular dentistry is by looking at its name.
Neuro relates to nerves, while muscular relates to function of the muscles. Neuromuscular dentistry is based on bringing these two aspects of the human body together with oral structures: teeth and gums. The goal of neuromuscular dentistry is to place your jaw into its optimal position for overall harmony of muscles, nerves, teeth, gums, and oral function as a whole.
This will give you relief from the TMJ pain you experience. We encourage you to call our dental office in Sheridan, Wyoming, at (307) 672-7567 to schedule consultation appointment.
