Neuromuscular Dentistry in Main Line
- Posted on: Jan 23 2013
Neuromuscular dentistry is the dental specialty that focuses on diagnosing and treating temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). TMJ is the name given to disorders affecting the proper alignment of your jaw. This condition often results in significant pain and functional limitations, and may have long-term consequences when left undiagnosed.
Main Line dentist Dr. Lindsey Marshall received her postgraduate training in neuromuscular dentistry at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. With her training and years of experience, she can detect TMJ and provide targeted treatments that restore alignment and produce long-lasting relief from discomfort.
Neuromuscular Dentistry Treatments
The goal of neuromuscular dentistry treatment is two-fold: Eliminate discomfort and restore function. Dr. Marshall uses advanced diagnostic tools such as the K7 Evaluation system to accurately diagnose TMJ, and state-of-the-art technology such as a TENS unit to immediately reduce pain and relax muscles throughout the face.
Long-term solutions may include :
- Dental restorations
- Treatment for malocclusion
- Oral splints or mouthguards
The best neuromuscular dentistry solution for you will be determined during your thorough evaluation.
If you live in or around Ardmore, Main Line, or Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and are suffering from any of the symptoms of TMJ, please contact Lindsey Marshall, DMD to schedule a neuromuscular dentistry evaluation today.
