Austin Arm and Finger Pain Dentists
Although there are a number of obvious symptoms related to the misalignment of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), such as jaw pain and headaches, there are also a number of symptoms one may not initially associate with a misaligned TMJ. One such symptom many people rarely associate with a badly-aligned TMJ is radiating pain down the arms and into the hands and fingers. The human body is a very complex and interconnected mechanism; therefore, when the jaw is out of line, it can cause pain and discomfort all throughout your body.
Fortunately, there are treatment options available to you. By assessing the alignment of your jaw, dentists can then potentially use neuromuscular dentistry to treat your arm and finger pain. For more information about how neuromuscular dentistry can benefit you, contact our Austin neuromuscular dentists of BridgeView Dental today at 512-347-8299 to schedule an initial consultation.
How Neuromuscular Dentistry Can Help You
TMJ can have a widespread impact on a number of parts of your body. When the jaw isn’t properly aligned, your body will try to compensate in a number of other ways. In some cases your shoulder will tilt the opposite way of the misalignment. This can create tension and spasms in your shoulder and arm muscles. These spasms can eventually cause numbness or weakness in the hands and arms.
A skilled dental professional can accurately assess your situation and provide the appropriate treatment to treat your TMJ and arm and hand pain. Let a skilled neuromuscular dentist get you the help and relief you need today.
