Improving Your Bite: Relieving Your Pain
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) treatment is different for every patient and what is best suited to restore alignment and comfort to your jaw will be based on your unique needs and the cause of your symptoms. A comprehensive assessment of your symptoms and the current relationships between your joins, muscles, and nerves of your head and neck will guide the right treatment for you.
Dr.Kasun studied neuromuscular dentistry at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI). The LVI program focuses on using advanced technology to effectively diagnose and treat TMJ/TMD.
Once Dr. Kasun has completed your neuromuscular dental diagnostics, she will develop the most ideal treatment plan for you. This may include one or a combination of the following:
- A removable or fixed oral splint
- Nighttime mouthguards
- Neuromuscular orthodontics
- Dental restorations such as crowns
- Simple at home exercises and massages that can relax and strengthen facial muscles
- Stress reduction
- Referral to a physiotherapist and/or registered massage therapist
Dr. Kasun uses state-of-the-art technology to detect and treat TMJ/TMD. Working individually with you, she can customize your treatment option to ensure proper alignment and, in many cases, prevent a reoccurrence of this often debilitating disorder.
