TMJ Treatment in Lewisburg, PA
Do you suffer from chronic pain including headaches or migraines, soreness in your jaw or painful chewing? Have you sought medical attention that has temporarily relieved the symptoms, but hasn’t solved the underlying problem?
Are you tired of living with pain every day?
Have you wished for an answer?
You may have just found it. It’s called neuromuscular dentistry, and it is a revolutionary treatment that has the power to change your life.
What is Neuromuscular Dentistry?
The simplified explanation is that neuromuscular dentistry is an approach to your dental care that focuses on the relationship of your jaw position, bite and teeth.
A truly healthy and comfortable smile begins with a physiologically sound bite. When your top jaw is aligned with your bottom jaw, your bite is in its optimal position and the muscles will be calm and relaxed.
When the alignment is off, called malocclusion, painful symptoms can result.
Through neuromuscular dentistry, Dr. Winans will determine the optimal position of your jaw by measuring the relaxed position of your head and neck muscles; then gently and non-surgically reposition the jaw to achieve those exact measurements.
