Temperomandibular Joint (TMJ) Pain Affects More Than Your Bite

TMJ Disorders affect how you bite, chew, drink, talk, swallow, etc. The two temperomandibular joints are located on either side of your mouth, near your ears, and act like a hinge between your upper and lower jaw.

When these joints become misaligned, it causes incredible pain and a host of symptoms like neck pain, headaches, migraines, shoulder pain, vision loss, eye pain and hearing loss.

By the time someone comes in for a consultation in our office, they have oftentimes seen many specialists, and are still searching for help with their malocclusion symptoms. Let’s do a quick test together during this video…

How Your Head and Neck Affect
Your Jaw

Upper cervical care is extremely specific in returning the head and neck to a more neutral position with gentle adjustments. There is an intimate connection between the temporomandibular joints and the upper neck and skull. The upper jaw is attached to your skull making up 50% of the temporomandibular joint. Upper neck misalignments and TMJ disorders are equally linked to trauma, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, facial pain, neck pain and shoulder pain.

ICCMO, a society of specialized neuromuscular dentists, endorses NUCCA doctors to help balance the bite and alleviate TMJ symptoms. We work together with your dentist to make sure your head, neck and bite are aligned.
