TMJ sufferers in Visalia experience the same symptoms as others with the disorder. These can include headaches, popping and clicking when the mouth is opened, along with tension and discomfort in the neck and jaw. This condition is commonly caused by malocclusion or jaw/bite misalignment. The advantage for Visalia residents is the premier TMD (temporomandibular disorder) neuromuscular treatment provided by Dr. Bodensteiner in addressing this painful condition. This involves 2 vital steps:
1. Diagnosis—Utilizing a high-tech computerized sensor referred to as a Tek-Scan, bite pressure is measured, allowing Dr. Bodensteiner to discover the unique areas of misalignment of each individual patient.
2. Treatment—Armed with an accurate TMJ diagnosis, adjustments can be made to the alignment of the bite and jaw utilizing a custom-made dental orthotic. This pain-free, anesthesia-free procedure restores an equalized biting pressure, helping resolve the pain, tension and discomfort associated with TMJ.
You can do more than simply wish you could gain relief from the pain and discomfort associated with TMJ. Thanks to Visalia dentist Dr. Bodensteiner, a healthy, accurately aligned bite is within your grasp. Book an appointment today!
