TMJ Treatment in Lewisburg

Stop Living with Pain. Start Living with Relief.

One of the conditions that we love to treat and focus heavily on is TMJ disorder. We put so much focus on getting rid of jaw pain in Lewisburg because we don’t want to see you struggle every day in discomfort. We’ve worked alongside so many patients who have endured daily pain for years and years. We know that this kind of pain and oral health condition is something that no one deserves — and we want to help.

Common TMJ Symptoms

There’s a reason why TMJ disorder can be misdiagnosed over and over. Some of the symptoms might make you schedule an appointment with your doctor, chiropractor, or even a neurologist. Here are some of the symptoms you should watch for:

  • Loose, worn-down, chipped, or cracked teeth
  • Failing dental restorations
  • Neck, shoulder, and back pain
  • Facial pain, headaches, and migraines
  • Clicking or grating sounds in your jaw
  • Locking in your jaw
  • Numbness in your fingers and arms

Unfortunately, these things can be chronic, and they don’t usually get better without treatment. (They might even get worse, and no one wants that.)

Welcome to the World of Neuromuscular Dentistry (It’s Changing Lives)

We know the name sounds clinical and complicated, but neuromuscular dentistry has been helping eliminate Central Pennsylvania TMJ pain for years. It also corrects all kinds of other problems by creating a balanced relationship between your jaw position, bite, and teeth. Essentially, when we align your top jaw with your bottom jaw, your bite is balanced, and your facial and jaw muscles can relax — it is this misalignment that’s causing all your pain and headaches.

Treating Central Pennsylvania TMJ with Advanced Technology

If you’ve never been to Union Dental Health, there’s something you should know about us and our office. We love high-tech dental toys so much our Lewisburg dental office is equipped with some of the very best technology money can buy. After all, getting rid of jaw pain in Lewisburg requires the right tools that help us accurately diagnose and treat your symptoms.

We rely on:

  • TENs Unit – This is what we use first to get your jaw to relax using a gentle, electronic pulse that stimulates the muscles in your head, neck, and jaw. It feels a little strange at first, but relaxing results are well worth it.
  • Jaw Sonography – Sonography is a non-invasive way to use sound waves to measure the noise in your jaw. We can get inside your head to hear your TMJ pops and click like you’re used to hearing.
  • Myotronics K7 Evaluation System – This big-named tool allows us to track your jaw’s position at rest and in motion. It has a computer program to record and interpret TMJ sounds and the path of movement your jaw follows in function.
  • Joint Vibration Analysis – As the name suggests, we use this technology to analyze your jaw joints’ vibration.

After your evaluations and measurements are complete, we decide on the best way to bring you relief. You partner with us, having just as much say in your course of treatment as we do. Whatever treatment is chosen, we will work together to make it possible for you to greet every day with a smile instead of pain.
