How Do I Correct TMD?    

Neuromuscular Treatment  (<Click for Video) 
 

Because of the complex interaction of the TMJ with the nerves and muscles of the head, neck and face, proper diagnosis and treatment requires a dentist with special training in the area of TMD and craniofacial pain.  Dr. Chomiak has undergone a mini-residency in TMD and Craniofacial Pain, completed extensive training in neuromuscular dentistry, JVA Interpretation, K-7 Interpretation, Therapeutic Botox Trigger Point Injections, and Roccobodo TMD manipulation and physical therapy.  Dr. Chomiak is a member of the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain.  His training places him as one of the leading specialists in Western Pennsylvania.

 

The treatment is dependent on the specific nature of the disorder and the amount of time the patient has experienced the condition.  The neuromuscular dentist will perform a variety of tests to help understand the specific nature of each patient’s problems.  It is important to understand that this is an orthopedic correction that allows nerve decompression, healing and more normal function of the muscular and neurologic systems. This is not about a jaw or tooth problem alone, but rather a piece of a complex medical problem.  Dentists who use neuromuscular techniques are uniquely qualified to correct and work with both the craniomandibular disorders and the related medical issues.
