Bringing You the Utmost in Advanced Oral Care

Physiologic dentistry techniques can be especially helpful for those with Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD). When your teeth, muscles, and joints are all aligned and in harmony, the symptoms associated with TMD can be effectively alleviated, giving you the opportunity to enjoy lasting comfort and a restored quality of life.

When you’re ready to learn more about how physiologic dentistry can help you find relief from TMD pain, our team is here to help. Simply reach out to our Jacksonville office and set up your consultation with a member of our team today.

Clinical Signs of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

As one of the most common forms of oral pain, issues related to TMD can have a variety of causes and result in different types of discomfort. Since many of the following signifiers aren’t limited to TMD, we recommend that you come in for an exam, so we can determine the cause of your discomfort if you’ve been experiencing:

  • Headaches, including migraines
  • Neck or shoulder pain
  • Ear congestion
  • Clenching and grinding
  • Loose teeth
  • Facial pain
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Forward head posturing
  • Sensitive and sore teeth
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Clicking or popping in the joints
  • Limited opening of the mouth
  • Tingling in the fingertips
  • Jaw pain
  • Cervical or neck problems

Your Ideal Jaw Position

Finding your ideal jaw position is paramount before any kind of final restoration actually begins. Doing so helps us prevent muscular imbalances that may otherwise lead to instability of your teeth, bone, and overall body posture.

Admira Dentistry in Jacksonville can restore an entire mouth to proper form and function by assessing occlusion (bite position), the muscles of the jaw, and the supporting hard and soft tissue structures of the temporomandibular joints using Biopak technology. This gives us measurable data that helps us determine your ideal jaw position, so we can restore your mouth's beauty, health, and balance.

Physiologic Dentistry vs. Traditional Dentistry: What’s the Difference?

While traditional dentistry focuses mainly on the hard tissues of the mouth (your teeth and bone), physiologic dentistry addresses your entire physical system, as it relates to oral function. 

This type of dentistry accounts for your hard tissues, soft tissues, muscles, and nerves, and the way they relate to your overall body posture and physiologic range of motion. In other words, it’s a more conservative approach.

A comprehensive evaluation will allow Admira Dentistry to accurately diagnose and develop a treatment plan that can best meet your needs for long-term optimal dental health and comfort.


We’re committed to offering our guests the most up-to-date technological equipment and materials available, as new technology gives us the power to address your dental issues more quickly and with greater precision, less pain, and longer-lasting results. This makes your visit more pleasurable for everyone involved!

Here is a short list of some of the technological equipment we use in our Jacksonville, Florida office to effectively diagnose and treat our guests:

  • Computerized Jaw Tracking Instrumentation with the Biopak system is used to record jaw movements, the range of motion, path of closure, protrusive guidance, rest positions, habitual centric occlusion, and to determine freeway space.
  • Electromyography will be used to monitor the muscles in function.
  • Myo-Monitor (Low-Frequency TENS) relaxes hyperactive facial and jaw muscles.
  • Tomography uses special radiographs to evaluate jaw joint condition and position.
