Neuromuscular Dentistry
New York, New York

If you suffer from migraine headaches or other aches and pains, neuromuscular dentistry may be a more complete solution than taking pain relievers.

Neuromuscular Dentistry involves the function of the muscles that control chewing, swallowing, and active/resting jaw positions. Neuromuscular Dentistry is most often used to reduce or eliminate the pain associated with TMJ and TMD.

The lower (mandible) jaw is attached to your skull by temporomandibular joints and muscles. If your jaw is not positioned properly, it is strained every time you speak, chew, swallow, yawn or even while you rest. It is estimated that over 10 million Americans suffer from TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome). Common symptoms of TMJ include:

  • Migraines or Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Wearing down of the teeth
  • Your jaw gets stuck or locked
  • Clicking or popping sounds when you open or close your mouth
  • Neck pains
  • Soreness in the upper back

TMJ is individually tested and treated. As a specialized neuromuscular dentist, Dr. Ferro will run detailed tests that are non-invasive and painless. Basically, the tests involve a piece of tape, a small magnetic strip, and lightweight headgear. As you open and close you mouth, the equipment traces the signals and determines whether your jaw is aligned properly and, if not, how it may be repaired.

If you are experiencing TMJ symptoms and live in the New York, NY area, call us at (212)206-8824 to set up a neuromuscular dentistry consultation, or fill out our online form.
