Do you frequently experience headaches, jaw pain, and stiffness in your neck or upper back? Perhaps you wake up in the mornings with facial tenderness or a heavy feeling in your jaw and head. These are common symptoms of a condition called temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ disorder. Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer through the pain of TMJ disorder any longer. With extensive training at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), Dr. Gregory Solich is your premier destination for comprehensive oral healthcare, including neuromuscular dentistry.
Benefits of Neuromuscular Dentistry with Dr. Solich
Neuromuscular dentistry encompasses all aspects of oral health, including the teeth and the jaw, as well as the muscles, ligaments, and joints that allow our mouths to function. When the top and bottom teeth are improperly aligned, the result is a significant imbalance within the neuromuscular system. Patients affected by this problem often suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), though they may not realize that they’re engaging in this damaging behavior at all. The same can be said of jaw clenching, an activity that places an inordinate amount of pressure on the teeth and muscles of the jaw.
Following diagnosis of a misaligned bite, treatment to restore the balance of the jaw and teeth begins. Dr. Solich uses only the latest in neuromuscular dentistry technology, including Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulation (TENS), to promote total relaxation of the jaw muscles. The proper position of the jaw is measured and noted, as is the status of the temporomandibular joints. Treatment may include the use of a custom oral appliance, the rebuilding of the dentition, orthodontic treatment, and more.
