The potential for pain and the fear of pain are major factors preventing some people from getting the dental care they really need. Individuals suffering from Temporomandibular Jaw Disorder are exceptionally subject to pain.
However, visiting the dentist, is the best way to resolve TMJ pain, by relying on the science of neuromuscular dentistry and a technology called Transcutaneous Electro Neural Stimulation (TENS).
Neuromuscular dentistry can improve and alleviate painful symptoms connected with TMJ, including:
TENS therapy is designed to treat the pain associated with TMJ. It does so by targeting mild electrical pulses to your jaw and facial muscles. These electrical impulses increase blood flow to the muscles which help relax the muscles, allowing the dentist to determine the ideal jaw position for your bite.
Westminster’s Dr. Gary Imm and his All Smile Care team understands your pain and your fears because of his years of experience working with other TMJ patients. His dental office features the comfort, technology and convenience you need to make your dental experience memorable and enjoyable, without the pain you might be expecting.

Using technology to identify your best bite is at the heart of the principle of neuromuscular dentistry. Once your correct jaw position has been determined, effective treatment os the next step. Whether it’s a simple bite splint or a more comprehensive treatment like orthodontics, Dr. Gary Imm can help you treat your TMJ disorder so that you can get relief.
