What Makes Neuromuscular Dentists Unique?
Not all dentists are trained in neuromuscular dentistry, which focuses on the unique relationship between the teeth, joints, and muscles of the head and neck. By finding the optimal position for the jaw, neuromuscular dentists are able to restore harmony between the muscles of the jaw, face, head and neck and the teeth and temporomandibular joints (TMJ). This harmony may result in the successful treatment of many different levels of pain and / or symptoms.
