Unbalanced Dentistry

“My teeth don’t seem to line up when I bite down, could that be the cause of my TMJ?” A ‘bad bite’ is certainly a leading cause of TMJ. It affects your jaw alignment and muscle tone which can create TMJ. It can lead to years of pain, a face that is functionally inadequate and […]


Migraines / Headaches

Please make it stop… Many people suffering from chronic headaches and migraines, facial pain and discomfort in their neck, shoulders and back pain aren’t aware that TMJ could be a significant cause.

TMJ Neck Pain & Neck Strain

Neck, back, shoulder pain and ‘muscle recruitment’ Your neck, back and shoulder muscles work as a team. (Seldom does a single muscle work without other muscles in the team joining in.) Often, when muscles are overworked, they will recruit additional muscles to help out. Strained Neck Muscles Affect Posture 1. With the head centered, the […]

Shoulder Pain, Back Pain

(Pain can occur in the upper back as well […]


Numbness in Arms, Hands and Fingers

I have tingling one day then not the next. There is no rhyme or reason … The muscles and the nerves in the jaw and face are extremely complex and intricately connected. Because of this, if your bite is unaligned, the nerves and muscles are also affected. This misalignment can result in the muscles throughout […]
