ICCMO STANDS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE OF CRANIO MANDIBULAR ORTHOPEDICS. ICCMO IS THE ORGANIZATION FOR NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY

ICCMO, THE INTERNATIONAL COLLGE OF CRANIO MANDIBULAR ORTHOPEDICS IS THE ORGANIZATION THAT REPRESENTS THE ART AND SCIENCE OF NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY. DR BARNEY JANKELSON THE FATHER OF NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY IS ALSO A FOUNDER OF ICCMO.

NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY UTILIZES SOPHISTICATED INSTRUMENTATION TO ASSESS AND CORRECT THE PHYSIOLOGIC POSITIONING OF THE JAWS, MUSCLES, OCCLUSION AND POSTURE TO ADDRESS CHRONIC TMJ,TMD AND MYOFASCIAL PAIN PROBLEMS IN A PHYSIOLOGIC FRAMEWORK.

NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY CAN VASTLY IMPROVE RESULTS IN COSMETIC, IMPLANT AND RECONSTRUCTIVE DENTISTRY. THE BASIC THEORY OF NEUROMUCULAR DENTISTRY IS THAT IDEALING THE OCCLUSION SO THAT FUNCTION DOES NOT REQUIRE PATHOLOGIC MUSCLE DAPTATION. CREATING AN IDEAL ENVIRONMENT FOR NORAM MUSCLE FUNCTION CREATES NORMAL PHYSIOLOGIC RESPONSES AND HEALTHY MUSCLES.

THE NEUROMUSCULAR SYSTEM INVOLVES THE TEETH, JAW MUSCLES, JAW JOINTS, HEAD POSTURE, SWALLOWING VESTIBULAR FUNCTION, BREATHING, SLEEPING, PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM AND THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. THE TRIGEMINAL NERVES AND TRIGEMINOVASCULAR SYSTEM ARE INTIMATELY INVOLVED NOT JUST IN TMJ DISORDERS BUT ALSO IN CHRONIC DAILY HEADACHE, TENSION-TYPE HEADACHE AND MIGRAINE.

I TREAT ALL OF THESE CONDITIONS IN MY GURNEE, IL OFFICE. I AM ALSO THE SECRETARY OF ICCMO AND THE ICCMO REPRESENTATIVE TO THE ALLIANCE OF TMD ORGANIZATIONS.
