Body’s Physiologic Health – depends on a harmony between your teeth and body

When the muscles, nerves, soft and hard tissues in your mouth and jaw area become damaged, fatigued or misaligned, it often takes a physiologic dentist to identify the problem source and provide treatment.

Dr. Adam Chapnick practices physiologic dentistry in both of his Barrie and Toronto locations. It involves understanding how your muscles power your temporomandibular jaw joint (TMJ) and how your nerves keep those muscles moving properly.

You have a TMJ on each side of your face that allows you to open your mouth to yawn, chew and speak. When the muscles supporting and moving your TMJ become inflamed, they can compress the nerves of your head, neck and shoulders causing varying levels of pain. Physiologic dentist, Dr. Chapnick can treat the underlying cause of TMJ related pain by identifying and correcting jaw misalignment.

Symptoms of Jaw Misalignment

The symptoms of jaw misalignment can be debilitating, but the cause is not always obvious. You may be completely unaware that your jaw is out of alignment and causing you pain until it is diagnosed by a physiologic dentist. Similar to a door that does not properly fit in a frame; sometimes the hinge breaks, sometimes the door wears and sometimes the whole frame gets loose! The system breaks at the weakest link. Dr. Chapnick uses a series of test and a neuromuscular evaluation to be clear on the source of your pain.

Some people elect to have their old silver fillings removed and replaced with tooth-coloured fillings. This is a procedure that Dr. Chapnick and his team in Barrie and Toronto can perform safely and effectively.

  • Comprehensive examination of your jaw
  • Digital X-rays
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) unit, which provides low current electrical pulses to relax your jaw

A K7 Evaluation System is also used to determine jaw misalignment through measurement of:

  • Jaw sounds (sonography)
  • Muscle activity (electromyography)
  • Jaw movement (mandibular screening)
