Did you know Dr. Rule adds neuromuscular dentistry to his dental care package? That’s right. Dr. Rule has completed extensive training in treating patients who have been diagnosed with TMJ disorder or temporomandibular joint disorder. This joint connects your lower jaw to the base of your skull, which gives you the ability to speak, chew, and yawn. When it becomes misaligned, it can cause the following symptoms:
- Constant migraines
- Stiff and sore shoulders
- Tightening neck muscles
- Ringing in the ears
- Clenching teeth
- Popping and clicking in the jaw
- Jaw tenderness
Are you experiencing any of these symptoms? Never fear: Dr. Rule is a specialist in treating TMJ for Gurnee patients. By visiting Dr. Rule, he can relieve the pain, discomfort, and tooth wear caused by TMJ with his non-invasive and modern treatment. The key to fighting TMD is tracking your jaw movement. Dr. Rule uses innovative diagnostic technology to measure the movement of your jaw and determine its exact position. An orthotic appliance is then customized to reposition your bite and stabilize the facial muscles, which will lead the jaw to relax in its proper position relieving the TMJ.
