Choosing a TMJ Disorder Doctor

In Gurnee, Illinois
Serving the Chicago metro area

When you have a specific medical condition it only makes sense to seek help from a doctor who is specifically trained in its treatment. Such is the case with TMJ disorder, a neuromuscular dentistry issue.

A Complex System

80 percent of the bodily sensations that are sent to your brain come from nerves in your cranium. Of these, the trigeminal nerve, which runs through you jaw, is the largest. The trigeminal nerve is but one part of an incredibly complex system responsible for both the proper function and comfort of your jaw.

When even one component part is not functioning properly you may experience symptoms including:

  • Clicking or popping in the jaw
  • Jaw pain
  • TMJ headaches
  • Tinnitus
  • Dizziness
  • Neck and back pain

If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, a neuromuscular dentist can use advanced tools to diagnose the issue, determine the cause of your TMJ, and customize a treatment plan that restores comfort and function to your bite.
