Are you suffering from frequent dizziness, headaches, clicking jaw joints, earache, a stiff neck or back pain? If you are suffering from any or a combination of these symptoms then you may be suffering from TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction) Disorder.

The disorder is caused when the jaw tissues get misaligned and impacted. This can cause several physiological problems like

  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Facial aches
  • Joint pain in the jaw
  • Clicking of the jaw
  • Earaches or blockage
  • Tinnitus (ringing of the ears)
  • Sensitivity to hot & cold substances
  • Clenching or grinding of the jaw
  • Partial mouth opening



In most of the cases, these symptoms are diagnosed as the outcome of TMJ (temporomandibular joint syndrome) which is also referred to as TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) or MPD (myofascial pain dysfunction) or even TMPDS (Temporomandibular Pain Dysfunction Syndrome ). Unfortunately, many people just live with TMJ Disorder and ignore it However, this pain can , sometimes, be easily relieved with simple bite correction methods. Neuromuscular Dentistry can help in the management of the bite correction which is known to give relief to patients. Neuromuscular Dentistry combines the knowledge of gums, mouth, jaw, face, teeth, and oral tissues. This treatment evaluates the relationship between the teeth, joints and muscles, to achieve effective results.

At The Townsville Dental Centre, our highly qualified, experienced and friendly dentists offer treatment for Neuromuscular Dentistry to effectively diagnose and manage TMJ conditions with Splint Therapy. The treatment is a four step program which can efficiently eliminate your discomfort and agony. The steps are:

  • Bite Assessment
  • Discovering your ideal bite
  • Recording your ideal bite
  • Providing your ideal bite with Orthotic or Splint therapy

The Oral Orthotic is an artificial unobtrusive oral splint and fits over the biting surfaces of your natural teeth which patients are supposed to wear while sleeping. It enables patients to often sleep better and wake up with less pain.

The bite splint also helps in preventing any further damage to teeth and gradually minimizes all TMJ related symptoms.
