Neuromuscular Dentistry If you woke up with a headache again this
morning, you weren’t alone. Millions of people
spend their sleeping hours grinding their teeth.
Most attribute it to stress. Most are wrong.
Nocturnal grinding is a common symptom of
malocclusion – a misaligned bite; a condition
that leads to symptoms that range from
annoying to painful. But the problem is easily
diagnosed and corrected with neuromuscular

One of Dr. Snyder’s Doylestown TMJ patients discusses the state-of-the-art treatment she received, and how relief from TMJ has changed her life.
What is Neuromuscular Dentistry?
Neuromuscular dentistry is a nonsurgical discipline used to diagnose and treat malocclusion through the gentle repositioning of the jaw, alleviating years of pain and discomfort and enhancing the appearance of the smile.
TMJ Signs & Symptoms
When the bite is off (malocclusion), many problems can occur. The most common is TMJ (temporomandibular joint syndrome), a condition that causes pain and soreness in the jaw. But malocclusion also causes many other symptoms that make diagnosis for most health professionals difficult, including:
• TMJ pain
• Clicking and popping in the jaw joints when eating or talking
• Headaches or migraines
• Sinus problems
• Tinnitus (ringing in ears)
• Unexplained loose teeth
• Worn, chipped or cracked teeth
• Cracked, chipped or broken dental restorations
• Pain or soreness around the jaw joints
• Pain in teeth that seems to move around
• Stiffness or soreness in the neck, shoulders and back, sometimes radiating down your
arm to your fingers
• Vertigo (dizziness)
• Congestion or stuffiness of the ears, or subjective hearing loss
The TMJ symptoms are so diverse, they may be attributed to stress, injury or illness. In fact, Doylestown TMJ patients often seek the help of a variety of specialists, from family physicians to chiropractors. But the pain is never fully resolved. Neuromuscular dentistry may be the answer.

“Undergoing neuromuscular dentistry treatment is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! At age 29, I got orthodontic braces to correct my teeth and bite. At age 31, the braces were removed. That same month, I was exercising and felt a snapping in my lower back. That was the end of tennis, ballet, downhill skiing and living pain-free. I searched for a cure for my back, neck and headache problems. I got temporary relief with ibuprofen, massage therapists and chiropractors. But I needed a solution. Then Dr. Snyder explained neuromuscular dentistry to me. The orthodontic braces had adversely affected my body from head to toe! It took two years to get my jaw realigned. Neuromuscular dentistry eliminated by debilitating headaches and effected significant, positive physical changes. It gave me back my flexibility, energy and stamina. It changed the way I could live and enjoy my life.” - Helen
