Neuromuscular dentistry places the jaw into its optimal position, relieving the symptoms associated with TMJ. While traditional dentistry evaluates primarily the teeth, bones, and gums, neuromuscular dentistry works with the hard tissues and the soft tissues, muscles and nerves.
By realigning the jaw joint through the use of cosmetic dental restorations, tooth re-contouring (equilibration) or orthodontics, our techniques relax the jaw muscles and eliminate painful symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ or TMD). What differentiates our approach is our emphasis on gravity as determining the bite, as well as where the jaw muscles are most relaxed.
To ensure the best diagnosis, we use the Myotronics K7 Evaluation System. This system allows us to measure, display and store all the pertinent data on your jaw’s physiological and anatomical function. The K7 combines electromyography and joint sonography to gently track the position of your jaw and surrounding muscles, determining the most comfortable, functional and optimal position for your bite. We don’t guess, we know exactly.
