Neuromuscular Dentistry in Reston

Treating TMJ Disorder

Neuromuscular Dentist, Dr. Myles trained at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI) where he gained valuable training and hands-on experience treating antagonizing TMJ dysfunction with neuromuscular dentistry techniques. He has been providing relief for patients in Reston, Oakton, Vienna, and areas throughout Northern Virginia for over a decade. TMJ is an acronym for temporomandibular joints – the joints that connect the jaw to the skull. When misaligned, these joints cause TMJ dysfunction.

TMJ Disorder Symptoms

TMJ disorder symptoms that we most commonly treat through our Reston Neuromuscular dentistry in Northern Virginia include:

  • Migraines or headaches
  • Pain in the face, jaw, shoulders, or neck
  • Tooth wear
  • Grinding and clenching of teeth (bruxism)
  • Earaches
  • Tingling in extremities
  • Popping or clicking of the jaw
  • Difficulty opening and/or closing the mouth

If you suffer from any of these symptoms, Dr. Myles can assess your TMJ disorder at his Reston Neuromuscular dentistry by using a TENS unit to relax facial muscles and a K-7 to determine proper jaw position. He may recommend TMJ therapy for patients living in Northern Virginia, such as oral appliances or restorative dental work, to correct your bite and alleviate TMJ symptoms. When jaw joints are properly aligned, the components of your oral structure will work in harmony, alleviating painful TMJ dysfunction and accompanying symptoms.
