Your body is a complex system of nerves, muscles and joints that are all interconnected. An imbalance in one area can cause strain or discomfort in another.
When your jaw is out of alignment it can cause a range of health problems such as pain in the joint, headaches, earaches and sometimes neck, shoulder and back pain. These can be caused by the body placing additional strain on other muscles as it attempts to compensate for the misalignment of the jaw.
Neuromuscular dentistry places the jaw into optimal alignment to relieve you from symptoms caused by a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.
