According to Rose Magno, DDS, FACDS of Emeryville Dental Care in Emeryville, California, some tooth and jaw pain stems from common oral health issues, such as cavities, gum disease, or poor dental hygiene. However, as a neuromuscular dentist, Dr. Rose Magno understands that many common symptoms stem from another problem, namely, misalignment of the jaw and incorrect bite. Which symptoms point to this condition? Neuromuscular dentists like Dr. Rose Magno advise patients to be aware of a number of aches and pains that may not directly affect the teeth. These include headaches, ringing in the ears, popping or clicking sounds in the jaw joint, and neck, back, and shoulder pain. As a graduate of the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, Dr. Rose Magno possesses the expertise necessary to determine if a patient is suffering from jaw misalignment and malalignment of teeth. In medical terms, the condition is known as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD). In addition to her training as neuromuscular dentist, Dr. Rose Magno is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the California Dental Association. She also participates in a group known as the Crown Council, an alliance of charitable dentists dedicated to promoting good oral health. A licensed practitioner of conscious sedation dentistry, Dr. Rose Magno is working toward a Master’s degree in Advanced Cosmetic & Neuromuscular Dentistry. Her Emeryville Dental Care practice offers patients a full range of dental services, including geriatric dentistry, pediatric dentistry, oral surgery, bone and gum treatments, and root canals.
