Correlation Between Jaw Alignment & Neurological Disorders
Many head and jaw symptoms can stem from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). These medical problems may have a dental root.

The trigeminal nerve is a major player in TMD. This nerve accounts for forty percent of the brain’s processing. If anything is out of alignment, messages are sent to the brain that impair motor function.

Treating TMD may improve other symptoms. Treatment may be as simple as a small oral appliance used on a regular basis.

Listen as Dr. Leonard Feld joins Dr. Susanne Bennett to discuss the correlation between jaw alignment and neurological disorders.
