Neuromuscular Dentistry

Neuromuscular Dentistry – TMJ Treatment

Neuromuscular dentistry is dental treatment that focuses on correcting jaw misalignment. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects the jawbone to the skull. Temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD) is estimated to affect over 10 million Americans. TMD can cause severe pain and discomfort. Common symptoms of TMJ dysfunction include:

  • Chronic jaw pain
  • Facial pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Sensitive, sore teeth
  • Worn or cracked teeth
  • Depression
  • Limited jaw movement or a locked jaw
  • Sharp pain in the neck and shoulders
  • Numbness in the fingers and arms
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds in the jaw when you open and close your mouth
  • Sleep problems
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Fibromyalgia

TMD can be caused by a variety of factors, such as arthritis in the TMJ, stress, trauma to the jaw, neck, or head, or misalignment in the jaw. Neuromuscular dentistry focuses on treating facial and jaw muscles, restoring them to their optimal positions and relieving the pain associated with TMJ dysfunction. Our talented dentists at Young Family Dental can help anyone suffering find relief by effectively treating TMJ dysfunction. We invite individuals to call or visit any of our Utah dental offices in Riverton, American Fork, Saratoga Springs, or Orem to learn more about neuromuscular dentistry and TMJ treatment or to schedule a personal consultation with any of our dentists.

  • “These guys are awesome! I had a tooth break on a Friday afternoon and they got me in right away! I've since seen 3 different dentists there and have no complaints. The office staff is incredible and friendly. I still am not a huge fan of going to the dentist, but this office has really helped alleviate my fears and dental anxiety. I would recommend them to anyone.”

  • I've known Dr. Chris for over 10 years, and my experience with him has been awesome. I got Invisalign with him to straighten my teeth, and it was incredible to have straight teeth! It was great, too, that I was an adult and I didn't have to walk around with braces like a teenage weirdo. Chris and YFD are excellent, I highly recommend them.

  • I took both my 8 year old and 3 year old daughters there, and it was great experience from beginning to end. It was the first time for my 3 year old (don't judge me ?) Jacqueline was great at making it a fun experience for her. Jessica helped take care of my 8 year old who had some infection on a tooth she had worked on a while ago. And the dentist was great too. Overall, everyone was friendly, everything was clean, and at the end I had a credit on my account that I didn't know was there which was an added bonus.

  • I love young family dental! Their assistants are great and make me feel comfortable which is important to me because I don't like going to the dentist. The dentists are very informative and make me feel at ease as well. They take extra time and care to make sure you fully understand what is being done and what needs to be done. If you need a check up, a cleaning, or work done stop or call young family in Riverton Utah, they are great!!
