Why See a Neuromuscular Dentist?

"Why see a neuromuscular dentist?" is a great question that we can answer very simply for you: a neuromuscular dentist is specially trained to diagnose and treat the many painful symptoms associated with a misaligned jaw. When your jaw is out of alignment, temporomandibular joint disorder occurs.

TMD, sometimes called TMJ, is a painful yet very common disorder that affects millions of Americans. Many of our patients have been to several medical doctors hoping for relief from their symptoms. It is only after coming to Chicago's Colonial Dental Group do they find relief of their painful headaches and other symptoms including:

  • Grinding of the teeth (bruxism)
  • Clenching of the teeth
  • Jaw pain
  • Facial pain
  • Shoulder/neck pain
  • Tingling in hands and fingers
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)


If you have suffered with any or all of these symptoms, a highly trained neuromuscular dentist such as Dr. David Dooley can help. Dr. Dooley is a fellow of the prestigious Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies (LVI) and has helped hundreds of Chicago residents find relief from this painful condition. Neuromuscular dentistry differs from general dentistry in that neuromuscular dentists are concerned with the function of the jaw, not the aesthetics of the teeth or the general health of the teeth and gums.

If you would like to learn more about neuromuscular dentistry, please contact Chicago's own Colonial Dental Group today.
