OBJECTIVE OF TREATMENT

Our goal is to gently and naturally bring the head, neck, jaw and occlusion (bite) into neuromuscular alignment. In other words, the head literally teeters on top of the cervical spine, with the center of gravity forward of the spine, tethered to the body by the muscles of the joint systems. Functional and resting head posture depends on the proper tension in these muscles. Movement of the jaw is related not only to chewing muscles, but also to chewing patterns and head and neck posture. Head and neck posture and jaw relationships are therefore all intimately connected, and a change in one necessarily affects the others.

Optimal results in relieving TMJ dysfunction, headache, and head and neck related discomfort can only be achieved by taking into account this dynamic interrelationship among head and neck posture, jaw position, and dental occlusion.

Dr. Mehta would like to clear up some misconceptions:

For patients seeking care for TMJ problems, there are often confusing listings by dentists. It is an important thing for patients to know that there is no such thing as a TMJ specialist. Unfortunately, there is no recognized American Dental Association specialty for TMJ.

However, I truly feel that these areas should be specialty areas for those dentists who put so much time and learning into these areas. I have gone to great lengths to train my self and my staff in the latest techniques and procedures. We not only look at the joint but we study all the associated occlusion, neuromuscular anatomy,and vascular responses.

I and my staff have traveled across the country taking courses and learning as much as possible about this debilitating condition, with the goal of helping my TMJ patients to overcome their pain and get back into life.

HEADACHES are one of the most common symptoms of TMD

“We help you get relief from TMJ symptoms and migraine headaches”

The majority of headaches are a direct symptom of TMD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction), because headache is one of the most common complaints of those who suffer from various types of TMJ problems, such as head and neck pain, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), and jaw pain. Most headaches are caused by (1) tenderness of muscles and joints of the head and neck, and (2) clenching or grinding of teeth (bruxism).
