American Academy of Craniofacial Pain - Venice TMJSmile away the pain:

If you experience frequent clicking or noise in your jaw joints, headaches, facial or neck pains or related discomforts, neuromuscular dental treatment may be the right solution to bring you relief. More than 50 years of clinical research have demonstrated that restoring misaligned jaws to their optimal physiological position through neuromuscular dentistry is effective in eliminating head and neck related pains. Proper alignment of the teeth and jaws also greatly increases the longevity of restorations and natural teeth.  Craniofacial pain therapy and neuromuscular dentistry both focus on having harmony between the muscles, bones and nerves of the head, neck and face.

A variety of disorders can lead to these kinds of problems and are found on a majority of the population in different degrees.  Most people have had falls or traumas that affect their head, neck and jaws from very early ages.  From the time we can stand, or even sit, we often fall and impact our jaw and neck.  Even slight trauma to an infant or child usually leads to changes in the growth of the lower jaw.  These changes affect the bite and lead to crowded/crooked teeth, overbites and a variety of facial and airway changes that have tremendous affect on the long-term health and quality of life of our patients.

Using our state of the art in-office open-air CT scan and Computer Jaw Tracking with Electromyography (EMG), we have been a leader in technology and training for TMJ Disorders (TMD) and Craniofacial Pain (CFP) treatments and therapy, and Neuromuscular Dentistry.
