TMJ Dysfunction and Receding Gums - alternatives to surgery
March 29, 2016
Before you consider surgery for these common conditions, try a safe, natural way to ease pain and promote healing in your jaw and mouth.
There are myriad reasons for TMJ pain, including an unbalanced pelvis, tight cervical and intraoral muscles, as well as cranial bone misalignment. After assessing and addressing these areas with MFR, your therapist can teach you self-release on your pterygoids, masseter and cervical muscles in a daily routine to continue your progress between sessions.
Receding gums often occur because of lack of circulation and oxygen to these sensitive tissues, resulting in gum tissue death. A simple way to increase the blood and oxygen flow to the gums is to do cheek and lip pulls. You gently pull the lip away from the gums until you reach the barrier, or limit of pull (not where it is painful!). Then you wait for a few minutes and move on around the entire perimeter of the lips, pulling gently but firmly to release the tissue and promote circulation.
If surgery is still necessary, performing these MFR releases will prepare the area for successful intervention as well as decrease recovery time.
