According to the Journal of Oral Rehabilitation, patients should receive a thorough cervical spine functional assessment and treatment, even in the absence of neck pain complaints. These findings are further supported by the Journal of Cranio and Oral Investigation, Journal of Oral Maxillofacial Surgery and many others.
We are trained to examine the head, neck and jaw to determine the best course of co-managed care with your oral health provider. With proper care in our clinic TMJD patients have received relief and correction, even for those having dealt with this for years. Our care will help your body to respond to the dental changes so that care received from your oral health physician has greater and lasting results.
