Thank you for trusting us with your patients. Below is a copy of our “Neuromuscular Dentistry” referral card. I hope it can be of help to any of your patients, friends or family members who are suffering from TMJ pain, headaches, migraines, neck and shoulder pain, which might be caused by TMD.
Our patients are referred to us from all practitioners who work in the fields of medicine and dentistry, also from chiropractors and physical therapists, who notice patients with symptoms of TMJ/TMD.
In 2007, we transferred our practice to incorporate TMJ and Neuromuscular Dentistry, and I would like to share with you some information about this exciting field.
As you know "occlusion" is the foundation of dentistry, and it is affected by three factors; teeth, muscles and TMJ. At the same time, it is a key factor in the success of every major dental procedure, such as orthodontic and comprehensive restorative dental treatments.
While traditional dentistry focuses only on teeth, which is only one of these dimensions, Neuromuscular Dentistry takes additional consideration to the other two; the muscles and TMJ.
Over the past several years, we were able to help many patients who have been suffering form headaches, migraines and TMD for many years. The results are AMAZING. When these patients go back to their dentist, they will be able to continue with their treatment plans in a more comfortable and smoother pattern.
Even though I believe that there are a lot of undiagnosed TMD issues and the majority of headaches and migraines are caused by it, still there are some cases that are not related to TMD, so we make sure that your patients are aware of that before we plan any treatment. We offer a complimentary evaluation, to determine if the cause of their symptoms is actually TMD related.
