Your mouth is comprised of a lot of moving parts. Even simple acts like biting and chewing rely on your teeth, jaw and neck muscles. Your mouth is just like a bridge: it has to be structured a certain way to carry a great deal of weight. The slightest misalignment can throw the entire system off-balance, resulting in horrendous pain, limited range of motion, dizziness and fatigue, just to name a few. Dr. Jose Bushdid specializes in TMJ therapy for patients in and around the Coral Gables, FL area. Revolutionary methods can give you amazing results!

What is TMJ Disorder?

TMJ (Temporomandibular joint disorder) is a serious disease that occurs because of a structural imbalance in a patient’s jaw-skull-neck relationship. In other words, bad bite problems. It may seem like a minor inconvenience, but dismissing it may lead to a destructive chain reaction resulting in a slew of problems. It’s important to know that your mouth isn’t the only area of your body that will be affected; your overall health and well-being are susceptible to other devastating effects. Pursuing treatment as quickly as possible is critical.

Symptoms of TMJ commonly include the following:

  • Headaches/migraine
  • TMJ pain
  • Clicking sounds in the jaw
  • Congestion and stuffiness in the ear
  • Tinnitus (ringing ears)
  • Vertigo (dizziness)
  • Posture issues
  • Shoulder, back and neck pain
  • Chewing difficulties
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Limited opening
  • Thermal sensitivity
  • Numb fingers and arms
  • Random facial pain
  • Clenching and grinding
  • Worn, chipped or cracked teeth
  • Cracking, chipping or breaking of dental restorations
  • Bells palsy

Dr. Bushdid is one of the few dentists in the country that specializes in treating these debilitating symptoms, using the principles of Gneuromuscular dentistry, which combines advanced neuromuscular instrumentation and the teachings of classical gnathology, to optimize your bite to a position where your teeth, muscles, TMJ joints and neck are all in harmony.
