Joint and myofascial pain

If you're experiencing jaw pain, difficulty chewing, limited mouth opening, or abnormal tooth wear, you might be dealing with cranio-cervico-mandibular dysfunction. First and foremost, it's important to understand that the jaw is connected to the head through a small joint. Behind this joint is a disc that plays a crucial role in opening and closing the mouth. Improper positioning of this disc can lead to pain and disruption in cranio-cervico-mandibular function. The symptoms of this disorder are varied, as is its impact on your daily life.

To assess the possibility of cranio-cervico-mandibular dysfunction, you can schedule a consultation with Dr. Carrier and his qualified team. During this consultation, a diagnosis will be established through a physical examination of the jaw and face.

Once the diagnosis is confirmed, a two-phase plan will be proposed to restore the balance between your teeth, muscles, and jaw.

Using electromyography and kinesiography, our team will measure facial muscle tensions to determine a comfortable jaw balance. Subsequently, a custom-made orthotic can be created. This initial phase of treatment is known as neuromuscular dentistry.

Once balance is restored, a second phase is initiated. This may involve orthodontic treatment or the placement of crowns. The goal is to ensure the treatment's durability and the long-term optimal position of the jaw.
