This is an email from a patient in need of care:
I have been checking few of your videos and article and felt you could be the one to fix my issues. I have pretty much all the symptoms of TMJ. Tiredness and pressure in my jaw. Difficulties to open my mouth, my jaw is shifting while opening, shoulder and neck pain, ears blocked, burning tongue…etc. I can also feel that my bite is not right and I’ve had few T-Scan done to fixe my bite but didn’t really helped. I already came once in America for a treatment called DTR Therapy but unfortunately didn’t help much. I’ve never had any accident.
Could you please let me know your process of treating TMJ?
T-Scan is a valuable tool too, however, it cannot be used to diagnose TMJ. It can be used as an adjunct tool to ensure teeth meet together correctly once the facial alignment, neck, and joints are correctly aligned nad the muscles are in the correct physiolgic position. More advanced T-scan technology is used with computers that also show muscle activity.
In addition to a comprehensive exam that includes head, neck, posture, airway, and facial symmetry analysis, a CBCT scan is indicated to further assess all the issues.
In overvew, it is essential to understand that trying adjust the bite alone, will not solve compelx TMJ problems.
