Achieve a Better Bite with Neuromuscular Dentistry
Symptoms associated with TMJ disorders can be relieved by placing the jaw into its optimal position. Some of these symptoms include popping or clicking in the jaw joints, headaches or migraines, locking jaw, facial, neck and shoulder pain and sore, sensitive, worn or cracked teeth.
Your teeth, muscles and joints determine how your upper and lower teeth bite together. If you have a misaligned bite, your muscles and joints work to get them to fit together. This can cause your muscles to overwork which may lead to pain.
Muscular dentistry looks at the entire system that controls the function and positioning of your jaw. At Medora Dental Care, our goal is to give you a neuromuscular bite, a jaw position based on a harmonious relationship between the teeth, muscles and jaw joints.
Are You a Candidate for Neuromuscular Dentistry?
After an initial consultation, we will discuss several options for you to choose from when deciding on a dental treatment. If you are considering major dental work, such as orthodontics, dentures, TMJ treatments or reconstruction, deciding on an appropriate treatment plan is very important. Choosing neuromuscular techniques can have a long-term impact on the outcome of your treatment.
