How To End Chronic Jaw, Head, and Neck Pain

How To End Chronic Jaw, Head, and Neck Pain

Do you suffer from chronic jaw, head, and neck pain? If so, you're not alone. Millions of people worldwide struggle with this type of pain every day. But what if we told you that you might have a TMJ disorder? Because TMJ pain manifests in so many ways, a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is difficult to diagnose. However, with a brief Neuromuscular exam and diagnosis, Dr. Buck can identify treatment to end your TMJ pain. 

The Issue of TMJ 

TMJ manifests in many ways, with many people suffering from the pain and relying on pain medication as their only therapy option. However, TMJ is not something to be taken lightly.

TMJ is most commonly known to cause pain in the head, neck, and jaw. It can, however, induce a variety of other symptoms, including severe crippling headaches, dizziness or vertigo, depression, anxiety, exhaustion, loss of sensation or numbness in the hands, sleep issues, ringing in the ears, stuffy ears, and radiating pain, among others. 

What Is Neuromuscular Dentistry?

Neuromuscular Dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the relationship between the teeth, muscles, and nerves. With Neuromuscular Dentistry, Dr. Buck focuses on treating various dental problems, including TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders.

What Causes Chronic Jaw, Head, and Neck Pain?

There are many different reasons why someone might suffer from chronic jaw, head, and neck pain. However, the most common cause is TMJ disorder. TMJ disorder is a condition that affects the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which is the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull.

A TMJ disorder can be caused by several different things, including:

  • Misalignment of the teeth
  • Injury to the TMJ
  • Arthritis in the TMJ
  • Jaw clenching or grinding (bruxism)
  • Stress

TMJ Symptoms

The most common symptom of TMJ disorder is pain in the jaw, head, and neck. This pain can be constant, or it can come and go. Other common symptoms include:

  • Jaw clicking or popping
  • Jaw locking
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Pain in the ears
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Neck pain

Epigenetic Orthodontics

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.

Airway Improvement

WOW! A 54% decrease in forward head posture; 164% increase in the antero-posterior size of the airway; 176% increase in the lateral size of the airway all from epigenetically centered jaw development orthopedics. This is the future of orthodontics!​
