Relieve Symptoms of TMJ
TMJ is a disorder that affects the movement of the temporomandibular joint. In other words, TMJ is when your jaw doesn’t move correctly. If you visit us with symptoms of TMJ, then we will thoroughly examine your jaw and monitor your movements with our advanced technology.
After a complete examination, we can determine whether or not you suffer from TMJ. If we diagnose you with TMJ, then the next step is to help your jaw relax so we can alleviate some of your pain.
First, we will use the TENS unit to relax your jaw. This system uses gentle electrical pulses to massage and calm your jaw’s muscles. Much like a massage relieves tension from your body, the TENS unit drains waste and relieves tension from your jaw. With a comfortable, relaxed jaw, your bite will naturally reposition and shift into place.
Once your jaw feels better and is in its optimal position, we will reevaluate. Depending on your jaw’s movements, we may recommend further treatment. This would include personally-crafted dental restorations to precisely correct your bite. In most cases, we can restore your bite quickly, easily, and without surgery.
Improve Your Athletic Abilities
If you’re athletic, then you probably want to be the best of the best. Athletes are constantly trying to improve and enhance their abilities. However, what many don’t know is that your smile can affect your athletic performance.
If you’re working long, hard hours to be the best athlete that you can be, then you should know about the secret weapon that many dental professionals know about. Your jaw and facial muscles can actually improve your balance as well as your upper body strength.
The Micro Action Mouthguard assists your jaw, bringing your muscles into ideal alignment. Formerly, your misaligned bite forced stress on your jaw and the surrounding muscles. When your jaw is in its optimal position, your jaw muscles will work with your upper body in harmony.
When you visit us for enhanced athletic performance, we use our advanced technology to monitor your jaw movement. After taking note of your jaw performance and looking at 3D images of your bite, we will customize your Micro Action Mouthguard to your specific needs. With the assistance of our advanced technology and the Micro Action Mouthguard, you will see better athletic performance immediately.
