How Myofascial Pain Syndrome Can be Treated by Neuromuscular Dentistry

The misalignment of a patient’s bite can cause TMJ (temporomandibular joint) abnormalities and many associated symptoms, including facial pain or myofascial pain.

The bones, joints, muscles, and nerves in the jaw area of the face are all intricately linked. When the regular alignment of the jaw is compromised, the surrounding bones, muscles, and nerves cannot function as normal. In particular, the facial muscles can suffer pain or spasm as they strain to compensate for the incorrect bite.

We can use myofascial pain treatment to realign and correct your bite so that the teeth, muscles, and joints all work together without tension, relieving your facial pain.
