Chronic Pain, Solved.
Pain in your jaw might not feel like a serious condition right away. But when a misaligned bite creates chronic jaw pain the resulting symptoms can include dizziness, back pain, neck pain and even chronic headaches and earaches. Even with a visit to the doctor the answer might not be clear. Pain in your jaw joint (TMJ) is also known as a the chronic condition temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD. Without orthodontic help this condition can remain chronic or worsen over time.

Millions of Americans suffer from the painful symptoms of TMD without a proper diagnosis by a physician. At Riar Dental Arts, however, our staff is specially trained in looking for and treating signs of TMJ pain or TMD. Using the best dental technology methods our team can help each patient find gentle and comfortable treatments for pain-free living and easier eating, smiling and laughing again.
Painful to Painfree
Modern Neuromuscular Dentistry
TMJ pain is much simpler to treat under the professional care of a dentist, who may administer tools such as sonography, electromyography (EMG), jaw tracking and TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation). When used together these gentle orthodontic treatments track the positioning of the jaw to discover its proper placement and feel. Other orthodontic treatments such as a customized dental splint or bite guard can help reposition the teeth and train your bite to form back to a place of comfort.
