Vancouver Island Neuromuscular Dentist, Migraines & Headaches

Neuromuscular dentistry is the science of diagnosing and treating TMJ and TMJ-related problems. TMJ, or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, indicates a malocclusion of the upper and lower jaws. A person with a malocclusion, or misaligned bite, can suffer from a number of symptoms ranging from mild to severe. Since your teeth, jaw muscles and temporomandibular joints can all affect the health of your bite, a neuromuscular dentist studies all three of these factors to determine why the misalignment is occurring.

Symptoms of TMJ include:

  • Clicking or popping of the jaw
  • Neck soreness or stiffness
  • Pain in the jaw joints
  • Uneven bite
  • Tooth pain
  • Unexplained tooth loss
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Loose teeth
  • Worn, chipped, cracked or broken teeth
  • Numbness in the arms and fingers
  • Shoulder, neck and back pain
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Receding gums
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)

Because many general and cosmetic dentists are not trained in the treatment of TMJ, these symptoms can often go undiagnosed. A skilled TMJ dentist can help you find relief from neuromuscular symptoms.

Neuromuscular dentist Dr. Roper has helped hundreds of British Columbia residents identify and treat TMJ by finding the optimum rest position for the jaw and helping the guest achieve this harmonious alignment through appliance therapy, lifestyle changes, physical therapy, dental treatments, and other strategies. Dr. Roper uses state-of-the-art neuromuscular technology to help guests finally achieve a balanced bite and find relief from TMJ symptoms. Read more about TMJ Therapy.
