TMJ & TMD Treatment

Expert TMJ & TMD treatment begins with a Neuromuscular dentist using sophisticated technology to assess and treat problems with bite.

In diagnosing headache pain EMG readings are taken of the muscles of the head and neck. This allows us to determine the location and cause of the headache. This is a completely painless procedure similar to an EKG.

Treatment for TMD Treatment for TMJ
As shown above, a low frequency TENS unit is used to relax the muscles of the head and neck in order to find the most comfortable relaxed position. Once the muscles are relaxed additional equipment is used to measure and record the new relaxed, comfortable jaw position. This instrument looks complex but is actually quite comfortable.

When all the measurements are taken, Dr. Chase will review the data and develop a diagnosis. At the consultation appointment, Dr. Chase will explain the results and the diagnosis so that you will have a better understanding of your condition. At this point, you and Dr. Chase can discuss treatment options, expectations and a final course of treatment.
