Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry Treats TMD With Neuromuscular Dentistry

What Is TMD?

Our teeth, joints, muscles, and nerves all work together in the proper alignment and functioning of our jaw. When any part of this delicate equation is overlooked, painful conditions such as TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) and other serious dental problems can develop.

How Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry can help: The Inclusive Approach Of Neuromuscular Dentistry Helps Treat TMD

Neuromuscular dentistry differs from traditional dentistry in that it includes focused consideration of the muscles and nerves in and around the jaw–and the correct positioning of the jaw–as part of overall oral health. This inclusive approach can help treat TMD as well as provide more comfortable and longer lasting solutions to related dental treatments such as dentures and smile makeovers.

Hard and soft tissues have a complex relationship. We work to make that relationship harmonious. If your jaw is misaligned, many physiological problems can result, including:

  • Headaches /migraines
  • Facial pain
  • Back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Sensitive and sore teeth
  • Jaw pain
  • Limited jaw movement
  • Worn or cracked teeth
  • Clicking or popping in the jaw joints

We Are Concerned About Your Overall Oral Health

TMD affects millions of people. Dr. Holsteen has received special training to address TMD problems using the inclusive approach to neuromuscular dentistry. This treatment utilizes modern technology to precisely determine the proper positioning of the jaw, and to place the jaw into its optimal position, which can help relieve the symptoms associated with TMD.

If you have symptoms like those listed above, take a minute and make an appointment with our team. We’d be happy to take the time to visit with you about the benefits of neuromuscular dentistry.

I've been seeing Dr. Holsteen since 1992! The staff is wonderful! They are friendly and they talk to you! They are not robots! (Not to mention they play my favorite oldies station on Pandora when I go in!) I love these professionals because they make you feel at home!
