Jaw Pain and Teeth Grinding

Your jaw impacts more than just chewing! Proper jaw function can improve your oral health, breathing, sleep quality, and comfort.

Do you have painful jaw muscles or wake up with headaches? Do your jaw joints make clicking or popping sounds when you yawn or chew? At Dr Emma’s Integrative Wellness Center, we treat jaw joint dysfunction to improve your comfort, sleep, and overall quality of life.

Being a Holistic dentist, Dr Emma recognizes that the entire facial structure, teeth, gums, joints, and bone work together in harmony. If the harmony is lost, our bodies try to compensate at the expense of airway, joint dysfunction, teeth grinding and more. These are common findings in patients with Temporomandibular Joint Disease (TMD)

-Uneven wear on the teeth

-Broken or worn teeth

-Cracked Teeth

-Headaches and migraines

-Ringing in the ears

-Boxy looking, overdeveloped jaw muscles

-Interrupted sleep

-Painful face, neck, shoulders and back

-Jaw joint deterioration

-Moving teeth

-Gum recession

Comprehensive Treatment Plan usually includes interim appliances, definitive orthotic devices for correct jaw positioning, reconstruction of severely worn teeth ,occlusal equilibration to even the bite, prolotherapy with ozone, stress management along with referrals to airway-centered chiropractors, cranio-sacral therapists or osteopaths.

Because painful jaw joints and muscles can cause fatigue, exhaustion, and general unwellness, many of our patients find that addressing the root cause of the problem, rather than just the symptoms, gives them a new lease on life!

Give us a call to arrange a jaw evaluation with Dr Emma Abramyan and our expert dental team.
