TMJ Treatment & Neuromuscular Dentistry

As a neuromuscular dentist, Dr. Sharon Schindler includes the muscles, nerves, and supporting structures of the mouth in a thorough evaluation. Recent advancements in technology have allowed Dr. Schindler to measure more accurately the most comfortable position for muscles, teeth, and the jaw. Very few people are aware that their jaw has an optimal relaxed position.

At Schindler Dentistry in Columbus, Ohio, TMJ disorders, also known as TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) can often be resolved through neuromuscular dentistry.

By treating the cause of your head and neck pain, we are able to provide solutions that last.

Are you suffering from jaw pain in Columbus, Ohio?

To find out if TMJ treatment can help you, consider the following symptoms:

  • Migraine headaches

  • Facial pain

  • Jaw pain

  • Sore, chipped, broken, and worn teeth

  • Clicking or popping in the jaw

  • Neck, shoulder, or back pain

  • Limited movement or locking of the jaw

  • Unexplained cracking or loosening of teeth

  • Limited jaw movement

These ailments occur when your muscles are not in their optimal relaxed position due to several factors, including severe wear and breakdown of your teeth.

Dr. Schindler addresses the physiology of your muscle and nerve function and how they relate to your teeth and TMJ function. Rather than relying on your present jaw position as being the best one for you, Dr. Schindler uses the most advanced technologies available to determine if your jaw position (bite) should be left as is or changed to a more optimal position.
